I am an avid giant pumpkin grower. I have been growing them since the late 90's. Over the years I have grown the Prizewinner Pumpkin variety a few times and have had GREAT results every time. The plants are fairly hardy and grow vigorously. For best results I would recommend regularly scheduled watering to keep the soil moist, but not soggy. I would also recommend weekly fertilizing and shading young pumpkins to promote growth. Not only are these pumpkins very large, but they make awesome jack-o-lanterns.
