(C. maxima) 110 days. Huge pumpkins can grow well over 100 lbs! Nearly round, bright orange fruit are stunning and are good for pies and canning. Very thick, orange flesh. Good for county fairs and displays. Anna Peach of www. squashandawe.com is holding medium-sized specimen.

Review:

Big Max sets fruits well on each vine. No less than 2 fruits and as many as 5 per vine. If the fruit is set upright, they grow very nicely. The color is more pleasing than Prize Winner and certainly better than Dill's Atlantic. The vines do well here in Balllantine, MT. We are in the Yellowstone River Valley near the Pompey Pillar famed by William Clark travels on his return trip to the east exploring the west via the Missouri River. We experience mildew here, but Big Max has been virtually void of any disease. Not tried eating any (we have plenty others to choose from), but they make a nice "seriously large" pumpkin that can be picked up by an average stronger adult.

Review:

I'm sure some of this issue is on me but two years of trying and littler zero pumpkins is hard to take for a plant that took up so much room in my garden. It seems that grasshoppers got to the leaves an infected it or it was just to humid and a white mildew took over. Either way none of my three large plants produced anything I could harvest. I only got two blooms to actually pollinate and start a pumpkin but the quickly died before reaching the size of my the tip of my pinky finger. Maybe I'll try earlier with row cover and some need oil or other natural spray to protect against fungus and insects but overall it may not be a good fit for the harsh humidity and heat of eastern North Carolina.

Review:

Second year trying to grow theses. I added a trulles which this grew up well. More than one plant grew several feet but ended up yellowing a lot in the NC heat despite being well irrigated. I may try again later in the season. The two flowers that fruited yellowed quickly so I've yet to get any pumpkins. Seems like the plant keeps growing out and dying close to the plants original base.

Review:

I got a pack of these seeds from baker creek and planted 4 seeds in a section of my small garden. 3 of the plants grew well but 2 were damaged by a very windy rainy day. A sunflower grew from the 4th seed... I did not have any sunflower seeds to plant at the time I planted these so I'm not sure what happened here except maybe baker creek accidentally mixed one in. The seed was very similar to a pumpkin seed in color. Anyone know of any sunflowers like that? I only got 1 pumpkin from my plant, a nice 20lb one, but I was expecting a more orange colored flesh, not a creamy yellow-ish color. Just canned it hoping it will taste good.
