OK so you can only choose one seed are thankful that you were able to grow in the past and would like to grow again in the future for me it is a very tough decision but I would have to go with the 1989.5 daletas

I’m thankful for the 2469 Daletas. I always enjoy growing seeds that I receive from the growers and keep them updated throughout the year. The 2469 was a great seed!

1230 Daletas way back in 2005. I fried my plants early and was given the 1230 from Pat Hansen. I had never, at that time grown a pumpkin over 200 pounds (I was 17). The 1230 grew a 644 pound beautiful pumpkin. I will always be thankful for Pat and that plant.

1844 Holub sq seed has changed the weights of the new generation of squash. Also the 615 Cantrell and 996 Haist. Just like the 2009 and 2145 did for pumpkins.

2003 Haist - grew my new PB which is yet to be determined, lol, due to a gap in measurement dates, (frowney) but in the
940 range nonetheless; ALWAYS available males and females - never a day where i could not have paired at least one selfing somewhere on that plant...made 6 crosses with and to it that i'll have seeds from to try in '21. eg

No one can choose just one :)

11/27/2020 2:44:22 PM



2145, 1991 and 2183. If I have to choose one, it is 2183, without a doubt. I will grow it, 2 or 3 more years at least.

11/27/2020 3:29:47 PM


1795 Mc cracken I have grown it twice in 2017 and 2020 but it failed to explode its potential due to root nematode problems I will return to sow 1795 in 2021 it will be grown in a new place with good soil preparation I strongly believe in this seed and I am anxious for 2021 :-)

11/27/2020 4:06:33 PM


Cape Breton Nova Scotia

1795 McCracken here too. I was a new grower when I grew it. The pumpkin only weighed 680lbs 36% heavy to chart but I grew my 680 this year and it grew my new personal best 1388lbs. I'm looking forward to growing the 1795 in 2021.

The store bought one that got me hooked on growing these.

12/1/2020 8:20:14 PM



I was quite fond of the 603.5 Muller 03 seed(which I grew a few times). It grew my personal best of 1041 lbs. in 2007. It tended to produce nice orange pumpkins that went about 10% heavy to the chart.

so many different seeds. It is fun to see which ones people liked growing. I'm surprised that there wasn't any 2009's or 1725's!
