(C. maxima) 110-125 days Lovely, giant, pink-orange pumpkins can weigh over 800 lbs, and do so every year, with some reaching almost 1500 lbs.! This variety was introduced by Howard Dill, of Nova Scotia in 1978, and has since broken all records.

Planted late but still impressed with the size of the fruit and how fast they grew. Can't wait to see how big these get, they double in size every week it seems like.

EarlyMaturity 4.0
 

What are the pros? Huge, tasty, good for fairs

What are the cons? hard to move because of weight

Review:

A humungously, ginourmously, titanicly giant pumpkin. should be called a giant pacific pumpkin. one of my favorite pumpkins that county and state fair judges LOVE. not 100% germination rate, but size (and weight) make up for it. Peter Peter pumpkin eater probably put his wife in one of these shells. she would have plenty of room!

What are the pros? big pumpkin

What are the cons? wilts w/ heat needs some shade

Review:

I grew this pumpkin last year just for fun, wasn't really trying to grow it real big or anything, but I was surprised by its vigorous growth! I had two pumpkins growing on it, and when I weighed the bigger one, it was close to 100 lbs! I will definitely grow it this year, and put more effort into growing it bigger this year :)

What are the pros? Entertainingly large pumpkin

What are the cons? Vines died off early

Review:

I really enjoyed having this one. I planted two vines in our front yard, and they grew everywhere, a la Little Shop of Horrors. One of our neighbors joked that if the vines got any closer to the sidewalk, she was going to start walking on the other side of the road. One vine grew 3 pumpkins, including a comically large 50-60 lb pumpkin that became a neighborhood favorite. The other vine grew only 1 pumpkin, in the 10 lb range. The vines were in the same planter, right next to each other, so it's hard to say what difference in conditions accounted for the different production. Both vines succumbed to powdery mildew in early September, which is early for us, as it is still quite warm now in October. However, the pumpkins have not rotted out, and it seems like they will make it to Halloween for carving just fine. We saved ourselves the $25 we usually spend at the pumpkin patch, and we had a great time growing this pumpkin.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, big

What are the cons? Fruit loss rate

Review:

While the vines have easily reached 20 feet some plants have only one fruit that has grown. I planted in late April to allow maximum growing time along with the fact that pumpkins can take a while to start to rot. Right now I have two large pumpkins and finally have another 5 that have made it past the shrivel up and die phase most others have. While this does have a poor capture rate for pumpkins, I feel that if I can get a few for the kids it is still cheaper than the grocery store and its fun to grow them. I would say the larger ones are in the range of 40 pounds and still growing. I did not manipulate the vines in any way. I didn't cut back because I want maximum pumpkins. Maybe next year I will try for a large one, but honestly what am I really going to to do with an 800 pound pumpkin, especially when it comes time to get rid of it. I would recommend this to patient gardeners that have a longer growing season to allow for loss of fruit.
