You'll have trouble growing THESE in containers!

Pumpkin Dill's Atlantic Giant growers are known to produce pumpkins that weigh over 600 pounds.

If you're after record-breaking pumpkins or simply giant pumpkins, who else would you trust other than the holder of Canadian and American record for the largest and heaviest gourd?

The 15 seeds in this packet are taken from the originator's stock and has an average yield of one to two fruits per plant.

The seeds grow into huge pinkish or orange fruits that'll be perfect for fall display. Don't expect to grow thousand-pounders on your first try though, 50 to 100 pounders are common.

Some techniques that commonly result in 200- to 300-pounders are starting out with a fertile soil, irrigating, providing wide spacing for the plants (a minimum of 70 square feet per plant) and limiting each long-vined plant to one fruit.
