Producing large, round orange fruits of up to 25kg! A real showstopper and a perfect pumpkin for kids, or to grow in competitions. A 'hundredweight' is more likely to be achieved if just a single fruit is left to grow on each plant. Also a great variety for roasting, soups and pies, as well as some monster Halloween lanterns!

To create giant pumpkins:

- Add lots of rotted manure and compost to the growing soil. Pumpkins are heavy feeders and will use lots of nutrients to grow.
- Plant your seeds early in the season, on the last frost date for your area. You might even be able to get a head start on the season by a week or two if you cover the growing location with a plastic dome to warm the soil, and your seeds/plants. Do not let the plastic touch the plants, and allow for ventilation during hot weather.
- Water regularly!
- Control weeds, which can compete for water and nutrients.
- Once stems begin to trail, cover them with soil. This will allow the plant to grow more roots along the stem to gain more nutrients from the soil, and in turn, allow your pumpkins to get bigger!
- If multiple pumpkins begin to grow, you can decide how many pumpkins you would like to keep. Sometimes removing pumpkins allows the nutrients to go to the remaining fruit.
- In autumn, when the plants begin to go dormant or are touched by frost, the pumpkins are ready to harvest! Enjoy!
