Where the PUMPKINS grow/My backyard

Do they exist? If so, what are they? If not, why not? I would like to put together some, so if they don't exist, please post some information, on end size, and day 20/30 circumfrences.

Thanks!

If you could also post your final DAP, weigh off date, and pollination date, it would be useful. Also additional circs such as day 10, 40, 50, 60, 70. So it would be nice if a post would look like this;

5.23, pollinated August 8th, harvested September 23rd, dap q46 , day 10 circ 11 inch, day 20 circ 21.5inch, day 30 circ 24 inch, day 40 circ 25.5 inch.


I understand that some people don't have this info, but please post what you can. Thanks!!!

I wish I got 40 to 60 dap!! Everyone's numbers would be different. Location weather ECT.

Different variety play a role too. Is there a certain variety you want?

If someone has already done the work, than that's helpful. I was just wondering what sort of size to expect from a different day 20 or day 30 weight. I would make it with all varieties, although I do understand that some are heavier than others.

I think an inch a day is good... it's been discussed. But then they slow down around 20" / 20 days?? I might calculate my pollination date a bit earlier than some. I have one at 8.5" at 20 days which seems like a bad sign.

I have one that is 17 inches, I think it's about 20 days old, but I was wondering what sort of growth to expect. There are benchmarks for multiple sizes for pumpkins, but not tomatoes, or so I thought.....

An inch a day is good you are just under that. It should start to slow down now. Generally the singles dont ever get bigger than 24". I think they are discussing this right now in the 'tomato weight' discussion.

Same link as in the above discussion but yeah it doesnt include DAP. I think at 20 days in hot weather you might be halfway done... equivalent to a pumpkin at 40 days? Sorry I guess I am not being very helpful.

In other words, you should expect to come in around 4 lbs hopefully?
