How to Grow Max Pumpkins

Big Max Pumpkins grow to a size of 70 inches in circumference and weigh up to 100 pounds. These magnificent pumpkins have bright orange skin and thick yellow-orange flesh that makes them ideal as Halloween decor or Jack-o-Lantern specimins. But, that's not all, these pumpkins make delcious pumpkins pies, too.

Tips & Warnings

  • Large pumpkins may get so big that they will begin to pull away from the vine. To prevent this, simply monitor the vine and rip out any roots that form from the vine near the pumpkin. This will allow the pumpkin room to grow without pulling the vine.
  • A large growing pumpkin increases in size rapidly. In dry periods, you may need to give your plant 15 to 20 gallons of water twice a week to maintain its growth.
  • Resist the urge to attempt to grow more than one pumpkin per vine. Remember with more than one pumpkin on a vine, the nutrients from the soil must be shared and growth will be decreased.
