Dear Team Just a quick line to thank you for the impressive service provided by your company. Delivery was prompt, goods not damaged (rare these days!), beautiful Roses and complete package/wrapping even better than I could possibly have imagined. People are so quick to complain these days but here is a compliment for a change. I will certainly be recommending your nursery & appreciate the effort taken.

There is no other way to describe the huge fruits that this variety can produce other than 'ridiculously huge'. The largest Pumpkin ever was produced on an Atlantic Giant plant and weighed in at 1810½ lbs (821.2 Kg) - to put that into perspective a Fiat Punto or Renault Clio weighs only a few Kilos more. Fruits can measure more than 6 feet (1.8 metres) in diameter.

In 'normal' garden growing conditions you're unlikely to get fruits quite as large at that - but here on the nursery we regularly grow fruits 2 - 3 feet (60 - 90 cm) in diameter and plenty heavy enough to try and pick up!

The skin is pale orange (more pale than many pumpkins) and fairly smooth in texture. The flesh inside is a more rich orange and of excellent flavour and texture - so don't just think this only to be grown for its novelty size value; but what on earth would anyone find to do with that much pumpkin flesh? 

Recommended by the RHS to be an excellent attractant and nectar source for bees and other beneficial insects.
