Heres another beautiful baby grown off my 706 uow Wagler 15 seed, the 1116.6 Krengel 17. Also, the current Taiwan record (weighed at a non-GPC event, I call it 1148 Hsu 17, grown by "pumpkin prince" Jack) came from that seed. Looks like Im the one who is growing the smallest pumpkins off the 706, LOL. No worries, last year it was just a late pollination on a 150 sqft plant, and this year the plant was almost dead after hailstorm on 28th June, so the 689.7 was actually a big surprise.
This picture shows the (so far) officially weighed offspring of the 706 uow Wagler 15 seed (1223 Radach x 1495 Stelts).
In 2015 a very dear friend was keeping fingers crossed for one of the plants/pumpkins in my patch, and by the end of the season I got to know it was the 706 (grown on the 1123 Radach plant). At that time my friend had the impression of having picked the wrong plant/fruit as personal favorite. No, it was a good choice! Thank you for having so much confidence in the 1223 plant in 2015, even though it was a rather small pumpkin the seeds are awesome and produce nice offspring. Sometimes it just takes a while.
