Footnote: I thought I should mention the seeds in the latest trial were all from Anna's big pumpkin... Same stock the better looking plants were simply from better filled seeds. There are further possibilities for selecting a good plant. What seems logical to me is to compare at least a few plants using your own dirt / at each planting location. I may try planting my own seeds as a backup to my 'obtained' seeds... There is a protection effect in a group because the pests will eat the outer plants first hopefully. So I could plant my own seeds all around the middle plant... Knights around a king. If the plant in the middle fails to be healthy... as a replacement the healthiest one of the surrounding plants will then be a fine choice. For now, thats the best plan I can think of.
