How to Save Pumpkin Seeds

  1. Take off the pulp and seeds from the pumpkin. Place this in a colander.
  2. Place the colander under running water and start picking out the seeds from the pulp. Rinse them in the water as you do. 
  3. Once you have a good amount of seeds rinsed, look over them and choose the biggest seeds. Larger seeds will have a better chance of germinating.
  4. Place the rinsed seeds on a dry paper towel. Make sure they are spaced out; otherwise, the seeds will stick to one another.
  5. Place in a cool dry spot for 1-2 weeks.
  6. Once the seeds are dry, store pumpkin seed in a cool and dry place.

Store Pumpkin Seeds for Planting

When saving pumpkin seeds, store them so they will be ready to plant for next year. Any seeds, pumpkin or otherwise, will store best if you keep them somewhere cold and dry.

One of the best places to store pumpkin seed is in your refrigerator. Put your pumpkin seed in a plastic container and place the container with the seeds inside at the very back of the fridge.

Next year, when it comes time for planting, your pumpkin seeds will be ready to go. Saving pumpkin seeds is a fun activity for the whole family, as even the smallest hand can help. And, after you properly store pumpkin seed for planting, children can also help plant the seeds in your garden.
