Hi,
I am no pro, but it is my understanding that it takes most pumpkins 60 days to mature after you have the pollinated female.I have several in Southern California and I am holding my breath as the days tick by. I think it also depends what variety you planted.
Good Luck!

It would be nip and tuck even for the earliest of varieties (90 days). Your advantage is that you don't have to deal with cooling temperatures which slow maturity.
