A Mammoth Big Max

b.hamiltonSeptember 28, 2007

I had 3 late pumpkins set and they all took really good.That brings my total to 11 and only 2 are under 100lbs !....So thats 1,223 lbs of BigMax from one plant.....Click on the link to see my pictures. The stump was as big as my wrist. I am already starting to apply leaves and compost to the patch for next year.

Out of curiosity how many pumpkins do you typically get from one big max vine. I have never experienced that many pumpkins from one vine before (except maybe jack-be-littles).
