Giant pumpkins

Cucurbita, Maxima

When it comes to giant pumpkins, Dill's Atlantic Giant pumpkins are the granddaddy 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.
