Have a nice mega on the first tress but plant is only a little over 1 foot tall. Do I try to pollinate this one, or wait until the plant is bigger? http://www.bigpumpkins.com/Diary/DiaryViewOne.asp?eid=331420

Definitely pollinate it…but may be better choices higher up. If it’s a winner, you’ll know it.

I keep it if it takes but watch how fast the fruit grows.
I find that a small plant generally has a small root system & can't support really rapid growth.

That is a good looking blossom Lance. Is that a megamuttD?. My 6.32 was a first truss. If you get that one set, I would probably go with it. Keep us posted.
