Those are great size but no where near the UK marrows. Hopefully more people will get into them next year and grow some huge ones.

I will be planting a couple and will give them very special attention.

I suspect that since they do well in the UK that this will be another vegetable that will thrive in cooler areas of the U.S.

With minimal care I have had them up to 60+ lbs. I think with a little work a much larger one is possible.

Mark, you should also mention your four over 200lbs. They might have been damaged but the two of us are still the only ones to grow over 200lbs.

They dont count Brad, you're the only one to grow one over 200 officially and thats all that matters but Im catching you up lol. If you decide to have another try at marrows one day I'll always have seed for you after all my strain did originate from your WR.

Mark do you sell some of your seeds? If yes let me know k.kloch@asak.at
