I've been growing pumpkins since I was a small boy and I've always wanted to grow a giant pumpkin! The preferred seed to use when I was little was the Big Max". I remember that I was able to grow a pumpkin over sixty pounds once. Using today's standard, that's extremely small.

I started growing the Atlantic Dill Pumpkin Seed years ago and ended up with a pumpkin over three hundred pounds. Since then, I've been pouring over the Internet to find the best known secrets to grow these giants. This site will provide you with the links, suggestions, and the necessary information to grow a giant pumpkin.
