Description

This variety can produce very large pumpkins - The largest can grow to in excess of 1,500 lbs and be over 6 feet across - it is widely used in competitions.

Cultivation

Sow the seeds form late March - May individually into modules/pots
Sow directly where the plants are to grow outside in June
Plant spacing is very dependant on how big you want the pumpkin to grow but a minimum of 1.5 - 2 metres is a good starting point
Prior to planting out enrich the soil with plenty of well rotted organic matter, making a small mound for the plant to sit upon is also recommended.
Once established you should 'stop' the plants after 2 - 3 fruits appear on the vine. Stopping with only one fruit will possibly make a larger fruit but the fruits will be more likely to split.
These are very hungry plants so a weekly feed with a tomato based fertiliser will encourage larger fruits.
