It was a coin flip decision on planting the 1742 again this year or trying the 1826. I went with the 1826. It was a robust plant, but the main vine split open and rotted at the end of June. About the time I tried retraining a new secondary or two, the deer found the plant to be rather tasty. So, I pretty much walked away. These three (plus another that rotted around 400 or so) were all grown on the same 1826 plant. The one on the left won the Williamsville weighoff at 1009#. Middle one weighed 645, the smaller one weighed mid-500s. The two bigger ones were pollinated with the 2416 Haist plant.
