Dill’s Atlantic Giant Pumpkin (not Organic seeds)
(Cucurbita maxima) The world‰Ûªs record for size-originator‰Ûªs stock.
Not Certified Organic. Many growers use Organic farming methods like natural compost and refrain from using chemical pesticides. But they do not go through the process and expense of getting their crops certified by local or State Agricultural Authorities. This type of seed is my second choice when I cannot find Certified Organic. I understand that farmer’s are trying to survive so I do not blame them for not spending extra fees to have the Certified Organic label. I could label all my seeds Certified Organic and who would know? But my ethical standards do not permit me to deceive others so I choose honesty over profit and sales.
Huge pinkish or orange fruits for fall display. 50 to 100 pounders are commonly grown. Fertile soil, irrigation, wide spacing (70 or more sq.ft./plant), and limiting each long-vined plant to one fruit commonly result in 200-300 pounders. The current world record is an Atlantic Giant of 1,469 lb. These seeds are from the originator, Howard Dill of Nova Scotia. Large seed. Avg. yield: 1-2 fruits/plant. Days to Maturity or Bloom: 120 10 seeds $4.29 shipped Free!
