How to Grow Dill's Atlantic Giant Pumpkins

Cucurbita, Maxima

When it comes to giant pumpkins, Dill's Atlantic Giant pumpkins are the grandaddy of them all.

Dill's Atlantic Giant pumpkin was created by legendary grower Howard Dill of Windsor, Nova Scotia, Canada. Among the literally hundreds of varieties of pumpkins, Dill's Atlantic Giant pumpkins are the record-breaking monsters that you see at fall festivals and Giant Pumpkin weighoffs.

If you have never been to a Giant Pumpkin weighoff, makes plans to do so this fall. You will see dozens of giant pumpkins on display. You may even see some skillful grower, bring one larger than the current world record. See world record pumpkins.  


How to Grow Giant Pumpkins:

Growing giant pumpkins is fun, and it is a challenge. It's similar to growing regular pumpkins. To grow a really big one, you have to learn all the tricks to coax the pumpkin plant to add every pound and ounce of weight possible to the fruit. It's a hobby, requiring all the skill and knowledge you can muster. And, it takes countless hours tending to your plants to produce the perfect environment for maximum weight.
