I am hoping for these to germinate. (I know some may not be guaranteed)
1626 Gantner
1875 Mendi
1810 Werner
1501 V.W.

My goal for 2019 is a cross that has as much pretty 1810 Werner in its background as possible. These three at are the top of my lineup, and I have backups if either of the '18 seeds doesn't germinate.
1937 Werner '18
1933.5 Stelts '18
1810 Werner '16

I've also got 2112 Skinner, 1931.5 Wolf, and 1673.5 Stelts 2018 in my back pocket just in case.

Engel's Great Pumpkins and Carvings

Menomonie, WI (mail@gr8pumpkin.net)

HMMM Something with Engel in it.
920 Copper 2017 (1374 Engel x 1495 Stelts)
359 Foss 2013 (1048 Engel x 2009 Wallace)
1374 Engel 2014(359 Foss 2013 x 1048 Engel)
2152 Gantner is my iffy one and will be planted at Bob's patch as he does not mind Just Orange.

Possibly cross this with the 1200 Engel (1912 Carter x 1143 Engel) 1143 is a 359 Foss x 1374 Engel. This pumpkin did not see a lot of dirt. Like it should

Anamosa, IA BPIowegian@aol.com

1200 Engel will be the main one. Maybe my 1047 McWilliams that grew a HD for me, or my 830, which is a cross of 2 HD winners (288 Buglio x 748 McWilliams)

The Pumpkinguru

Cornelius, Oregon

For Orange I am going with 14 plants of various sizes to include and in no particular order:
Which ever 567 Mombert offspring I can get to germinate
Which ever 846 Calai offspring I can get to come up
1586 Sherwood
1501 V/W
920 Cooper
1374 Engel
823 House
Another 1374 Engel
588 Cooper 2016
686 Cooper 2017
743 Cooper 2015
1626 Gantner
Another 920 Cooper 2017
850 Hester 1999
and 2 wildcards. Not all of these will be full sized plants, some just 20 x 20 and 1 will be my 150 SQFT Plant. These plus 4 more that may or may not be so pretty will make up the entirety of the patch this year as I rest the other half of the patch.

Still a few weeks to change my mind again. But right now, I'm narrowed down to:

1626 Gantner
1567 Gantner

And undecided on these one of these three for my last spot:
923 Gouin
1044 Gansert
679 Donahue

Going to give the 1501 Wagner another shot. We had a great plant going last year that we lost to root rot.

Hadley Ny

Adam, 923 was red..beat out the 681 gansert red also by one vote for HD at Vermont..identical except for size ..not sure about the Donahue..907 young being the female on both (1059xself) I will be planting both those seeds plus the 1044..don't get more orange than them..

4/4/2019 8:32:44 PM

Adaml23

Decatur, Indiana

Big T I agree. I probably wasn't gonna grow the Donahue this season, but 2 of the 4 seeds got cracked in the mail so I am worried about them germinating in the future. That's the main reason they're in the running this year. That, and the stem on that thing was loonnnggg.

4/4/2019 10:04:14 PM

Big T Hoff

Hadley Ny

Don't worry about cracking..unless tip is broke,,lets water in sooner germinated test seeds a few days ago ..split seeds had lots of roots in 2 days..quicker than solid seeds i use clear plastic cups..roots all over before it pushes seeds out of the seed mix..some people remove shell and just germ innards..got an extra seed .file and gently pull out inards..cracked shell usually means early germination. Don't know why you want to grow a Gansert seed..Miserable Old Bastard..but I'll grow it anyway..more HDAs in the North East than anybody I know..top of my list to grow besides 923..they are just kin seeds grow a couple of each and cull the bad ones if there is such a thing..Good Luck T

Adam, Still time to get your hands on a 532 House 1044x575 Wolf..He has some of the best orange crosses but never grows large. Mr Gansert and myself will both be growing it.Please dont hold it against mr gansert for being a miserable old bastard!! T

Big T, I already can't decide on what to grow... I don't need anymore options this year to make it any harder lol. And that's good to know on the cracked seeds. That may help me decide some.

Adam, I grew one last year with a long stem from the parent..some of the off spring had long stems others had short stems..genetics from both sides will follow the next year.

farmergal, the 777 has hardly been planted in my opinion;
i have one and intend to grow and pollinate the world with it, self it, you name it. although all seed choices can and will change over the next few weeks, the 777 has grown TWO over 1,000 pounds - a 1223.5 and a 1048, and both were extremely orange. just sayin'. I'd hate to have to make YOUR choice! Good Luck, though---eg

thanks Pumpkinpal. I thought I had a 777 but I must've given it to someone when I downsized my seed collection a few years ago.

I started the 1567 Gantner yesterday. Fingers crossed there is good results :)

St. Paul, Minnesota

495.2 Ressler (1030 DeBacco X 1143 Engel) HDAW -18%. Plant is growing like crazy despite real late start and possible YVD. Think I might lose the plant to YVD because a few inches of the main vine are yellow but rest of vine is looking good and leaves are looking good on the plant. First time growing a plant where it is growing. Might get an end of July pollination if I am lucky.
