I would agree with just letting one grow on the main vine rather than two. That way you can concentrate all the energy into one fruit, but then the twin 162's. Maybe a matter of luck with two? IMHO

Where do you find detail information about field pumpkins? How they grow, what to expect, how fast, how long it takes to grow on the vine? etc...
