Organic Pumpkin Seeds, Big Max

(Container Gardening For You)

If you are a big fan of pumpkins, then you will surely enjoy growing these Organic Big Max Pumpkin Seeds from Ferry-Morse. They will produce huge fruits that can reach 6 feet in diameter and 100 pounds or more.

There is also the possibility of producing fruits up to 300 pounds under excellent growing conditions! Too big for containers, probably, unless you have the world's biggest boxes.

The fruits are pinkish-orange in color. They have fine-grained, yellow flesh, while the skin is deeply ribbed and slightly roughened.

This packet will plant approximately 3 hills. Sow them in an area that receives full sun after all the possibilities of frost is past.

You may use heavy organic mulch to control weeds. The Big Max pumpkin flesh is ideal for canning and freezing, and makes delicious pumpkin pies too.

Favorable for storage: The pumpkin stores well because of its thick skin that can grow up to 3 to 4 inches

Less culinary uses: Their size limits their culinary use. A huge pumpkin is quite difficult to mobilize around the kitchen. They also lack the flavor and texture common in smaller pumpkin varieties

Requires large space: You will need to provide large amounts of room for them to grow properly and achieve the maximum size. It is also recommended to limit each vine to one fruit
