Dill's Atlantic Giant is the grand-daddy of pumpkins. This giant variety can grow to be a monstrous 45-225 kg (100-500 lbs)! Watering frequently and adding fertilizer occasionally may aid its growth.

Instructions: Sow a few seeds over a hill 9 to 12 inches tall and 1 foot across. Choose an area with full sun after any chance of frost has passed. Thin to 3 plants per hill when 1 inch tall. When vines are 3 inches high, thin to the strongest plant in each hill. Use a heavy organic mulch to control weeds. After harvest, allow to stand in garden a few days until skin hardens, then store in a cool, dry place.

Suggestions: When the fruit sets, prune the fruits until only one or two are left.
