Giant Pumpkin

didsmjOctober 17, 2004

Hi All,

Apologies if you are asked this question a lot but after a visit to a garden contest today I became inspired as to trying to grow a giant pumpkin next year.

As such, can anyone recommend a relatively easy to grow giant variety to start me off and one that will thrive in Long Island.

If you could also recommend a good place to get seeds or seedlings?

Many thanks

if you want to grow a true giant --- then try Dills Atlantic Giant, this is the current world record holder and 1000+ pounders are a common thing with this variety.

go to and all your questions will be answered, as well as loads of free seeds in a month or so!
