It happened. That phrase that makes all pumpkin growers cringe. You might just call it the "B" word. I hate to even have to say it, but here we go: Blosoom End Split.
I lost the 282 Scherber pumpkin today to a blossom end split (BES). We've had a descent amount of rain over the last couple of days and it split the pumpkin open. Just too many problems this season. I'll pull the plant this weekend and plant some sorghum sudan grass to get that spot ready for next season.
