seeds from giant pumkins

Does it make any difference to the pumpkins produced, if you only select seeds from the biggest giants of the same variety as I often see seeds from suppliers in the U.S.A sold at different prices per weight of pumpkin of the same variety.

Its the genetics that matter...a 1000 pound pumpkin will not always throw a 1000 pound pumpkin. It has a lot to do with soil preparation, sunlight, average temperature, and about 25% luck. Seeds are available from most growers for the caost of 2 1st class postage stamps and a bubble pack.
