Will send these out next Monday for those of you who requested these from the porch pumpkin. Pumpkin taped 550 lbs. Weighed it on my tripod at 647 lbs. It was a 2624.6 willemijns x self. This was a very late plant. My original plant flat vined out to 12 feet. Great seed count. 455 good and only 34 bounced empty. I will be including these in the sngpg seed promo this year along with my 1790 and 1846.5.
