This is a guide on how to grow and get pumpkins in Animal Crossing New Horizons (ACNH).
You buy pumpkin starts from Nook's Cranny or Leif and will take 4 days to grow. Once pumpkins are harvested, you can use them in DIY, sell them for profit, use as decorations, or eat them!

Starting October 2020, Pumpkin Starts will be available at Nook's Cranny for 280 Bells. Much like flower bags and tree saplings, you'll find these inside the cabinet.
You can also buy Pumpkin Starts from Leif all year round for the same price (280 Bells)!
Though on October, he'll half his price down to 140 Bells. Definitely look the the koala the deals of the season!
|Day 1||Day 2||Day 3||Day 4|
To plant a pumpkin, select the starts from your pockets and click Plant 1.
You can use a shovel dig a hole on the ground and plant the start after; this allows you to plant the start in the exact position you want!
Water your pumpkins every day before they're full grown and you can get upto 3 pumpkins in a single plant!
Just like flowers, you won't need to water them if it rains! You'll know if you pumpkins have been water if they start to sparkle.
|Day 2||1 Pumpkin|
|Day 3||2 Pumpkins|

Harvesting your pumpkins resets them to the Day 2, so you'll only have to wait three days to harvest them again!
Pumpkins will always grow back with the same color. If you're looking for a specifc pumpkin color, you'll have to replant a new Pumpkin Start or plant a harvested pumpkin with the color you want.
Pumpkins can come in four colors: orange, yellow, white, and green. You won't know what color a pumpkin will be until they've fully ripened.
Orange pumpkins are the most likely to grow, while green pumpkins are the least likely. Plant a lot or create your own pumpkin patch to get all the colors!
Decorate your island even further by creating your very own pumpkin garden. The table above shows some cute examples of pumpkin patch layouts to get you started!

Pumpkins actually sell for more than their starts cost at 350 Bells a piece. Check how much you can earn from harvesting Pumpkins with our porift calculation below!
|# of Starts||Cost of Starts||Harvesed, Watered Once||Harvested, Watered Twice||Harvested, Watered Thrice|
The initial cost in parentheses is if you buy starts from Leif in October.
You can place Pumpkins to decorate on your island! However, leaving too many of the on the ground could lower your island rating.
You can place them on top of furniture, such as tables and shelves to avoid this!
Pumpkins can be grown and harvested all year round, so make sure you have your watering can and shovel ready for some pumpkin farming!
We think it's highly likely that we might be able to grow more crops down the road, so we have our fingers crossed for the next update!
