Product Overview

Cucurbita maxima

Grow the biggest jack o'lantern in your neighborhood! May reach 100 lbs. Also good for pies and canning.

Big Max' is the choice of giant pumpkin growers. Unlike some large pumpkins that are just blobs, 'Big Max' is round and has smooth, light-orange skin and is perfect for Halloween carving or other holiday decorations. To achieve maximum size, grow one pumpkin per vine, water and fertilize regularly. Excellent for canning (many cans!) or pumpkin pies (many pies!).

Variety Info

Bright orange skin with 3"–4" thick yellowish-orange flesh. Huge pumpkins can reach 20" diameter and 100 pounds or more! 'Big Max' was introduced in 1964.

Sowing Inside

Not recommended except in very short growing seasons, 2 to 4 weeks before your average last frost date. Sow in biodegradable pots that can be planted directly in the ground. Transplant after your average last frost date, when weather is warm and settled.

Sowing Outside

RECOMMENDED. 2 to 4 weeks after your average last frost date, and when soil temperature is 70°–90°F.
