huge pumpkins
Reviewed By: Russ Kadisak (Highland, In)
I planted two pumpkin plants in an area no bigger than 15ft by 20 ft. One pumkin grew to 375lbs. The other pumpkin grew about 250.bs. All I did was water alot and spray for bugs alot, since I did not plan to eat them. A good idea is place plastic under the pumpkins to keep from rotting out to soon and cover to keep the sun off, so they dont ripen too soon.

Not too bad
Reviewed By: Sean (Northeast, Missouri)
Planted these in mediocre soil and they sprouted well. Vines were vigorous and just about grew out of the space I had set aside for them. They probably would have except cucumber beetles got into them and before I even realized what was goin on the plants were half dead. They didnt die and even continued to try and put out fruit but to no avail. Very susceptible to bug problems. Even after I started killin the beetles these plants never recovered. I had one pumpkin that was really on its way to getting big when the bugs hit. I dont kno how big the pumpkins will get with these. I haven't decided personally whether or not to plant these again. If given the right environment (no bugs, plenty of rain, etc) I believe they would do very well

Poor Performance
Reviewed By: Derek (Watertown, Connecticut)
These pumpkins arent very great plants, let alone fruit. There was a 50% germination rate, and the vines are only about 2 feet long, with no fruit whatsoever. Connecticut Field Pumpkins are much better performers. I dont know how other people grew them so easily.

Atlantic
Reviewed By: Philip Wellington (Cole Camp, Missouri)
"The Atlantic ""Dill"" Giant is an outstanding performer! To grow a record pumpkin, one should look to others for information such as those at bigpumpkins.com! There is lots of good advice and the opportunity to grow a 500 to 1600 pound pumpkin! The seed is very important and Atlantic dill giant pumpkin is the best but the soil and the growing procedures are very important as well! Not eager for competition but if your going for it then GO FOR IT!"
