Curcurbita maxima

The World’s Biggest Pumpkin. Take on the Bream Creek Show’s famous big pumpkin competition! Sourced from breeder Howard Dill himself, this whopper holds the world record at 666 kilograms. Fertile soil, irrigation, wide spacing (25 square metres per plant), and limiting each long-vined plant to one fruit commonly results in huge, 100kg+ pink or orange fruit. That’s a lot of soup. 5 seeds.
