The 658 Garofano has excellent health. Its a slow and steady wins the race kind of plant. Opposite of my 430 which was a fantastic early sprinter. It wasted no time making a big pumpkin but the plant is halfway withered down. Not sure the weight I have not measured it. Probably mid 400s.
I did not make many, or any? crosses this year that I feel gond about but I did want to comment that the Rodebaugh plant is nice and the Garofano plants all have good traits and in the Gadberry I see a lot of potential. Perhaps next year. More white ones than orange ones this year although it would be 50/50 if some of my other plants didnt turn to crap.
I have to say the orange ones are more fun. Its really not all about size for me. I find myself neglecting the white pumpkins plants, just because of their color.
