First time grower, the plant I will use for the 150sq ft, has no genitics from a giant, will try my luck. I do have two wallace 1257.50, will not confine these to 150sq ft, wishing all good luck, you may need some.

This is my Wallace 1257.5 genetic freak, the plant started off looking normal till the cod leaves twisted right beside each other then 4-leaves came up all at once. Its unusual but will keep him and let it grow. The other Wallace 1257.5 is normal looking.

Wallace 1257.5 genetic mishap, this plant has no stump, this was my second choice 150sq , but it exceeded 150 before pollination. Will be interesting to see how big the Pumpkin will grow with no stump and Florida hot summer.
