Atlantic Giant (Dill's Atlantic Giant)
Cucurbita maxima

120 days — If you are going for a "giant" pumpkin, this is the type of variety that the professionals use to set records. Fruits weighing over two-hundred pounds are common and ones in the four-hundred to five-hundred pound range are possible.

These huge fruits have slightly rough skin that ranges in color from yellow to red-orange. As you may have guessed, these babies need a lot of room and are not for the container gardener. Space hills fifteen to twenty feet apart in an area that receives full sun and is protected from wind.

The largest fruits tend to thrive in cooler, Northern regions. If you are in a warmer area, provide shade to reduce stress. Additionally, careful and regular watering are critical since at the peak of the growing season the fruit can add fifteen or more pounds per day.

There is some debate over the exact origin of the 'Atlantic Giant' pumpkin. We do know that  four-time giant pumpkin world champion, the late Howard Dill of Nova Scotia, made selections for size and structure in the 1970s and 1980s and was awarded PVP protection (since expired) back in 1986.[1] Mr. Dill is widely held as the force behind the modern giant pumpkin growing hobby.

Each packet contains two grams, which is approximately 8 to 10 seeds.

  1. USDA Plant Variety Protection Office - PVP protection applied for in 1985, awarded in 1986 and expired in 2004.
