Product Description
A longtime favorite all-purpose pumpkin, Big Max Pumpkin bears huge, orange fruits—weighing up to 100 lbs. and sometimes more. The pumpkins make impressive jack-o'-lanterns and produce plenty of fine-grained, bright orange flesh that can be used for making lots of pies as well as for canning and freezing. To grow extra-large pumpkins, it's best to grow just one pumpkin per vine, to give the vines plenty of space and to water the plants during dry spells. 110 days to maturity.
