About how many pumpkins can I expect to harvest from each plant of a calabaza pumpkin? Thank you for your help.

Tim, not sure if this is a particular variety?? "Calabaza" means pumpkin in Spanish. I would say usually about 4 to maybe 8 per vine. You can remove flowers to increase the size of each pumpkin. DId you check with the seed company to see? Pumpkins need a lot of warmth, sun and plenty of room to sprawl.
