Viability of competition strains of specific pumpkin seed can sometimes be very poor and, added to the large number of variables in the process, no guarantees on successful germination of seeds can be offered. Selecting Pumpkin: If you want to compete for the heaviest pumpkin buy Clive’s seed which is sourced from very competitive seed stock. If you want a large round orange pumpkin for a display or carving buy Mark’s seed as it is bred for this purpose.

Our 2017 grown seed was grown from a pumpkin weighing in at over 1700 lbs! Big, orange and round as featured on BBC Countryfile. Giant pumpkin seeds sourced from competition grade giant pumpkins. The photo below is of a 2017 pumpkin grown by Mark O’Hanlon from a Clive Bevan seed. Clive Bevan’s ‘Giant Vegetable Book’ covers the basics of Giant Pumpkin cultivation and also provides useful information on how to grow many other vegetables to competition standards.

Don Langevin’s classic pumpkin books are essential reading for experienced and novice competitive giant pumpkin growers alike. Even though pumpkin world record weights improve year after year, the techniques explained by Don will help any budding giant pumpkin grower get amazing results. 2010 – 2018 All rights reserved.
