110-125 days (C. maxima) 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.

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.

Review:

Plant it where you wish to enjoy it or put a pallet under it when fruit is set so you can move it where you want when ripe. 250 pounds this year.

Review:

I was eager to grow some giants, but these vines had a very high rate of fruit failure. They took a long time to set fruit, and much of what was set turned white and shriveled. I grew them in two different beds, one drip-irrigated with more sparing water and the other sprinkled with heavier watering. The vines did fine in both locations but the fruit did not flourish. I only got two ripe fruits in the end, one from each bed, and the largest was under ten pounds.

Review:

Just made pie. The flesh works great and is dry enough, especially if cured, and sweet. It does also help to blend the flesh instead of mashing, because it's grainy, but again, makes great pie. A little tip though, if you don't think your growing season is long enough, try anyway because I had an early frost that lower the time this one had to mature to 95 days. Even though the vine died, I left the pumpkin in the sun and the inside ripened fully.

Review:

I have a bad location for my garden because I live relatively far north, have a pretty short season, and have partial shade that causes slow growth and rotting. I Also have an abnormally high squirrel population due to our nut trees and they dig up all seeds and bite off sprouts. These seeds where strong enough to get dug up by squirrels replanted, and still sprout and produce. Also, because the squash are so large, even in poor conditions the squashes will still be of reasonable size. Also resisted vine borers when everything else got attack and almost killed.
