What are the pros? Quick growing and gorgeous
What are the cons? Requires constant attention
Planted this variety late in May and harvested in mid September. We prioritized 2 fruits and let our vines grow out to 24ft (7m) in a large open allotment in order to grow the biggest fruits. Unfortunately, mildew and rot got to our smaller fruit before the end of the season but we were just about able to recover the prize pumpkin, which came in at a whopping 25kg (55lb) despite a scabbed exterior. If, however, you wish to focus on growing the tastiest fruits, then smaller is generally better, but despite its gargantuan size, the flavour was still perfectly tasty in a multitude of recipes.
