giant silkworm development

How long will it take a cocoon of a giant silkworm - maybe Luna Moth - to develop?

Wildlife Expert - Ken Burton

Most giant silkworm moths overwinter as pupae. The Luna Moth has two well-defined generations a year in most of its range, with one generation overwintering as pupae and the other having a shorter pupation during the summer.
