These pages covers my efforts in growing of Atlantic Giant pumpkins in Australia and
hopefully inspires others who are interested in becomming involved in this rather
addictive hobby with pictures, tips and contacts.
Atlantic Giant pumpkins are grown for weight and competition. A major appeal of growing
AGs is that they are the largest fruit in the world. Intense competition in North America
and UK have sparked an increasing interest in genetic selection over recent times leading
to a dramatic increase in records with the largest fruit now approaching 500 kg.
Whilst competition is intense overseas, in Australia the current record is only around
250 kg so there is still plenty of opportunity for growers to produce record breaking
are no great secrets in growing these giants only one magic formula
as Genetics + Soil + TLC + Luck = A Winner!
