Besides the 2152 Gantner , there was an 1,878.50 Leer weighed at Stillwater . Does anyone know if this was also orange ?
I take it that if Debbie Gantner grew the 1501 , it must have been orange. Any pictures of either of these 2.
The 1501 might be a sought after seed for both big and orange.

If I am thinking of the right pumpkin, the 1878 was a big orange. Not real bright but orange. It had a dill ring on it. Solid color, but not HD.

With the amount of work that goes into growing them you'd think we would want to have pictures of all of them. I noticed that also two big ones off the 1501 vw.

It was a light orange. It was very glossy and a nice looking pumpkin but not a howard dill. It is a nice looking pumpkin for its size.

Leer is active on Facebook--the 1878 is his "Fiona". I think the facebook link below is public, but there are tons of pictures on his page and elsewhere.


Here's a pick of the 1501 if you scroll down a bit:

Thanks for the pictures.
I think the 1501 just might be planted a lot this year. I believe both of its offspring were personal bests by a lot and a HD to boot.

I would love to see a pic of the other half of the 2152 Ganter cross the 1418 Lehrer. I cannot find a pic of that anywhere. It has to be orange because Debbie grew it.
