I posted them in the blossom-downster(s) diary. It wasn’t blossom down but wow... what an inspiration to growing big and orange.

PS: I think I might not be the only blossom-downster next year... At least one person tried it this year and he said he actually likes growing them blossom-down! We might have a real group going next year. It might be a small group but how cool would that be... I look forward to it.

Also, I will post pics of a very small but rather nice orange blossom-down one soon.

That was a real nice example. Big City do you know the story behind using the 1418 Lehrer as pollinator. There is nothing in the 1418 family tree to suggest that it could grow anything over 1418.

That is what I love about this hobby is that looks at things differently. Debbie was the only one in the top 28 to use two seeds under 1550 and she produced on of the nicest 2k pumpkins ever grown.

Hey Glenomkins, give credit where credit is due, Vince (anaid_tecoud) is the king of Blossom down growing and has been doing it successful for many years before you arrived on the scene.

Awesome growing Vince, you are blossom down King!!

I guess Debbie Gantner is the new Queen of giant pumpkin growing. Congratulations to her on her feat.

I saw pictures of his and yes and I have yet to grow anything as nice as his. It was a one man sport for a long time and it was almost a one man sport again this year. With the nice weather its possible that Prince Wetzel may grab the crown this year. If I hold on to the lead, yes, I will admit to being an unworthy usurper... That is the truth! Nice ones in the past from Engel, Trychta, Rea, and Zunino the King. There have been impressive accidental blossom-down pumpkins I think the 1806 Mathison. Ps I did post a relatively small orange one in my own diary somewhere in the middle of the last handful of posts. Ball-shaped... kids might roll it down the road... I hope everyone is able to learn all they want to. Sorry for any errors or misrepresentations I do value good communication.

Norm Gansert is the king of orange and now Debbie Gantner is the queen of orange. Are they related...both of their last names start with Gan....
