One plant can produceOne plant can produce pumpkins. They can self-pollinate. To ensure pollination, we would suggest you help them pollinate by hand.

The male has a straight stalk and a flower with all pollen.) Pick an opened male flower, take off the petals to expose the pollen, and dab it into the stigma of the female flower. That's it!
