Question - How to ripen pumpkins after frost?
Will pumpkins turn orange if they are still green on the vine? Kind of like the concept with tomatoes. My pumpkin plants have died from frost and some of the pumpkins are starting to turn orange.

Answer
As tomatoes they will need temperature 14-21C to ripen. They can however ripen in full sun in greenhouse or sunny windowledge as their skins will hardened. When they are ripe they should be stored in a frost free place, ideally 10C, until required for use.
