Another way to get Sun Pumpkin is by growing them on your own. In order to do that, players will have to talk to Uma, a farmer in Hateno Village. By talking to her, players will be able to give her Pumpkins that she will plant and grow more in numbers. However, the growth of the Pumpkins or any other crops takes actual 48+ hours in-game that cannot be spent sleeping or passing time. It means players will have to play the game for more than 48 hours to get the Pumpkins.

Players can eat the Pumpkins as it is which only regenerates half of a heart but if players cook the Sun Pumpkin, it will regenerate only 1 broken Heart of Gloom which is 1/3 of what the Sundelion plant heals.
