Cucurbita maxima 'Trisinus' is my newly bred best edible variety. I would love to enlarge this 8-lb-fruit with pollen from a suitable AG. Since this variety only makes 3-lobed fruits and 4-lobers more rarely, I'm looking for seed from a grey 4-lober AG.

Vietnamese giant amaranth, solidago canadensis, self bred crown tomatoes, Hungarian beans, malva verticillata, Tatarian buckwheat and only a few cucurbits grow in this wild corner of my gardens. Flowering solidago - not jet seen on this picture from late June - has to attract insects for the pumpkin field behind.
