How to Get Pumpkin Seeds

Pumpkins have always been the center of Halloween celebrations. Therefore the game increases the Halloween excitement by bringing in the pumpkin features. To start this pumpkin excitement, you have to begin with buying the seeds. For this purpose, you can visit either Nook’s Cranny or Leif – throughout the month of October. Since pumpkin seeds are readily available, so buying pumpkin seeds is therefore not a difficult task


However, this is not all to know about Pumpkin Star. You need to take a look at the expenses of buying Pumpkin seeds before you set out and choose a place to buy your seeds from.

We have already enlisted two places to buy pumpkin seeds from, but out of these two, Leif is better and therefore recommended. The reason for this is the fact that buying pumpkin seeds from Nook’s Cranny is an expensive purchase. At Nook’s, the bargain of a Pumpkin Start will cost you 280 Bells. The same Pumpkin Start will cost you only 140 Bells if you buy it from Leif.

The table below gives detail of various prices of Pumpkin Starts at Nook’s Cranny and at Leif. This table clearly illustrates why buying Pumpkin Starts from Lief is a wiser thing to do.

Nook’s Cranny 280 Bells 1,400 Bells
Leif 140 Bells 700 Bells

How to Grow Pumpkins

Growing Pumpkin seeds is as hardworking, and toiling a task as buying Pumpkin seeds is easy. Pumpkins are grown just like vegetables and flowers are grown. The productivity of pumpkins is directly proportional to the hard work you invest. If you water the seeds more, they will yield more pumpkins.

The table below tells you what the proportion of watering the seeds and pumpkins yielded is.

The harvest of pumpkins will not come immediately after the sowing of the seeds, much like in real life. It takes 4 days after the sowing for the pumpkins to be ready for harvesting. Once you harvest the pumpkins, you have to keep watering them and let them stay planted for two more days. After that, the pumpkins will regrow.

Here again, the regrowth of the pumpkins depends upon how much you water them. If you water it more, it will yield more. The Pumpkins will regrow in the same color.

Pumpkin Colour Types
