This giant pumpkin was grown by Phil Hunt, approximately 30 km from our farm, and weighed in at approximately 1950 lbs.! My two sons, my nephew and I are posing for this picture. The remnants of this pumpkin went to feed our sheep.....not a Baaaad idea.
Giant pumpkins are very hungry vegetables, best grown on a warm compost heap with plenty of water. Competition size is achieved with lots of tender loving care. Best grown in a hoop house for competition with large amounts of compost, kelp (natural growth hormone), rock fertilizers, lots of water and HEAT!
Organic specimens can reach 400-500 pounds for decoration or a family picture.
Experience is required to grow competition size.
