Competition Pumpkin 900 lb. Plus Seed Growth Habits:
As heavy feeders with a low, vining habit, giant pumpkins require plenty of space, compost, water, and sunlight to produce fruit weighing 900 lbs. or more.
It is often a good idea to prepare the soil for giant pumpkins during the fall prior to planting. Mixing in rich compost can improve the soil structure and give the soil a nutrient boost that will be needed in the spring when the plant starts to feed.
Various Uses for Giant Pumpkins:
Pumpkins weighing 900 lbs. or more are grown for local, state, national, and international competitions. Pumpkin competitions originated as part of rural, farming culture in North America, but they have since spread throughout the world, with people from all over the world competing to grow the largest pumpkins.
Giant Pumpkin Benefits:
Giant pumpkins are grown primarily for competitions. The flesh of competition pumpkins is often not as sweet or desirable as the flesh of pumpkins bred specifically for pies and desserts, but it is edible. If you eat the flesh of competition pumpkins, it will have nutrients similar to pumpkins grown for flavor. Pumpkins are full of vitamins, like vitamin A. Plus, they have important minerals and antioxidants, including as beta carotene.
What does it take to grow a competition pumpkin that weighs 900 lbs. or more?
A single plant will try to grow multiple pumpkins, but you should only let it work on growing one pumpkin. After a female flower is chosen and pollinated, you will need to pinch off all other flowers so the plant can concentrate on growing one, large fruit.
Once the fruit has set, the pumpkin will grow very rapidly. The giant pumpkin will need at least 1" of water each week and a regular feeding program to ensure it has the proper nutrients.
Be sure that the water drains well at the site you choose for growing your giant pumpkin seeds, as poorly draining soil can lead to disease.
Avoid planting pumpkins in soil where pumpkins have previously been grown in the past 3 years to reduce the risk of disease.
