Rival F1 PMR is a jack o lantern pumpkin that has 15-20 lb fruits; orange in color.

Rival PMR is a round, medium-size jack with intermediate resistance to powdery mildew. Medium-length vines produce deep orange pumpkins weighing an average of 15–20 lb. Early maturity compared with other medium-size powdery mildew resistant pumpkins.

Plant Spacing recommendation is varied by grower for pumpkins, squashes, and melons. I think the bottom line is this. Squash vines need a LOT of space to roam. In backyard gardens that usually means letting them roam on the grass or running up a trellis/fence. If the squash is small to medium sized then feel free to let it climb unassisted. If the squash gets about the size of a pie pumpkin then they will need a sling to keep them from falling off their stems (search pantyhose watermelon sling). Most recommendations for growing squash is 3 plants per hill with hills 6'-12' apart. Wider spacing may allow for easier harvesting. I wouldn't plant anything between squash plants, let the vines roam AND feel free to try different spacing to test limits. You can cut the vines short, train them to go a different way, or maybe they will just thrive in a squished environment, this is a good place to try it out.

Plant outside after last frost when night time lows are at LEAST 50*F consistently otherwise plant will likely be stunted or perish.
