Fastest growing pumpkin we've ever raised, until we lost it in early August. Female is a selfed 1756 H/J x selfed 1625.5 Ganter cross which is a twist on the famous 2145.5 McMullen which raised the former world record. Pollinator is 15% heavy to chart so this cross should grow a big one for you.
The 89 Harrington seed which was the mother of this pumpkin is a cross of the 133.4 Wursten which has produced a pumpkin over 200 lbs and the 188 MacKinnon which is an 81 Wolf selfed pumpkin. Great genetics in this one.
Mother seed 168.7 Baggs is 163 MacKinnon x 123.9 Kloch. Pollinator 186 Nesbitt is 133.4 Wursten x Self. Mother seed is the same cross that grew the new world record field pumpkin this year. Pumpkin was our fastest growing ever but ripened at day 20 due to heat this summer.
Mother of the 86.4 Harrington was the 180.8 Horde which has a 247 lb pumpkin in its genetics. Pollinator has the 81 Wolf in its genetics which has grown many of the largest field pumpkins. This pumpkin was 7% heavy for it's measurements.
This was a fast growing pumpkin which had 10 days gaining over 30 lbs/day. Lost it early due to automatic waterer malfunction while on vacation. This pumpkin came in 2nd at the Iowa State Fair in 2017. This is a selfed 1501 Barlow which was a selfed 2145.5 McMullen which grew the world record....
Late pollination during tough growing year limited the size on this one. Both parents have proven genetics that should grow you a big one. The mother of the 2469 is the current 2624.6 world record. The 1866.2 is loaded with the famous 2009 Wallace genetics. this pumpkin went 7.6% heavy to chart.
Mother seed 35 Peine is 205 Wursten x 188.5 Treece. Pollinator 168.7 Baggs is 163 MacKinnon x 123.9 Kloch. Pollinator is the same cross that grew the new world record field pumpkin this year. Pumpkin went 8% heavy to chart.
Went 9.1% heavy, harvested at a young age for our state fair. Even though it was harvested in early August pumpkin was still solid after Halloween. Grew another pumpkin on this same plant after this one that weighed 577 and was 15% heavy to chart so good heavy genetics.
Lost my controlled cross on the plant so grew several on the plant. This was the largest and current Iowa State Record. The 110.5 LaRue is a cross between 220 Baggs x 154 Baggs. This is an open pollination but only grew one marrow plant so most likely selfed.
Lost my controlled cross on the plant so grew several on the plant. This was the second largest. The 110.5 LaRue is a cross between 220 Baggs x 154 Baggs. This is an open pollination but only grew one marrow plant so most likely selfed.
This one was picked early for the Iowa State Fair and is the current fair record. Growth rate would have had it finishing around 50 lbs if it would have been allowed to fully mature. Pollinator is current world record.
This was the second bushel gourd on the plant. Was a missed cull and was a late set. Winner at Stillwater Harvest Fest. Was the fastest growing one of the three on the plant. Open pollination but only grew one bushel gourd plant so most likely a selfed pollination. If interested in a sure...
The 172 Harrington mother was a cross of the 298.5 Lindley and the 277.5 Barber. The 298.5 was a selfed 302 Kent and the 277.5 is a cross of the 332 Mudd and 321.5 Mudd which are heavy in the 302 Kent genetics as well. This watermelon went 10% heavy to chart.
Wide wedge-shaped melon. Short of weight potential due to mite infestation of plant. Melon went 2.7% heavy to chart. Open pollination but all other melon plants in garden this year that could have pollinated it would result in a good cross.
