Dill’s Atlantic Giant Pumpkin Seeds 2015. Heirloom Vegetable.

Approx. 8 seeds/pkt (8-10 seeds/gram)

Without a doubt, Atlantic Giant is one of the worlds largest pumpkin varieties. Developed by Mr. Howard Dill of Nova Scotia, this giant has won numerous world titles for largest pumpkin, often weighing in excess of 450 kg (1000 lbs)! Even under normal conditions in the average home garden, this monster is still capable of outstanding performance. Plants reach 60-80 cm in height. The kids will just love growing this one and by the way, keep a forklift handy so you can take your winner to the fall fair! Approximately 120 days to harvest.

How to Grow

Pumpkin is a hot weather crop. They need full sun and deep, rich, well drained, organic soil with a pH of 5.5 to 6.5. Before planting, work in lots of compost. Sow seed directly outdoors from late May through early June 2.5 cm (1″) deep in hills 2.4 m (8′) apart with 4-6 seeds per hill. After germination, thin to 3 plants per hill. Seed can be started indoors 3 weeks before the plant out date. Pumpkins do not transplant well–use paper or fibre pots that can be set directly in the soil. For competition sized pumpkins, allow only two pumpkins per plant to mature. Protect mature pumpkins from frost and cold temperatures.
