Pumpkins Are Covered in Black Mold
I have several very small pumpkins that are covered in black fuzzy mold. What causes this and what can I do to prevent it?

It sounds like it has a form of sooty mold, which is a side effect of a pest infestation. I would treat the plant with neem oil. This will take care of both the sooty mold and any pests on the plant.
