The Pumpkin Big Max, 'Cucurbita maxima', is a large pumpkin that may reach 100 pounds. Grow the biggest Jack-O-Lantern in the neighborhood and it is good for pies and canning! Big Max is the choice of "professional pumpkin contestants" The smooth light orange skin is perfect for Halloween carving or other holiday decorations. To achieve maximum size, grow one pumpkin per vine. Plant in the spring 2 to 4 weeks after the last average frost date. In warm climates plant in February or late summer for fall harvest. Pumpkins prefer rich well drained soil that is high in organic matter. The soil should be kept evenly moist. Harvest before the first light frost or when the pumpkin foliage begins to dry out.
