My new personal best
« on: October 16, 2015, 12:25:14 »


It's 82.5kg but there is a bit of pallet that it grew through stuck to it at the moment, if I allow a bit off for that it's a around 176lbs...

Huge! What kind is it and will you be baking skads of pumpkin pies?

Congratulations, that monster weighs more than twice as much as me. I hope you can roll it around rather than pick it up!

Um its' my own selection from some seeds that Slyfox-mal (I think) sent me a few years ago. Basically it's big thing is how hardy the foliage is compared to some. the plant is still going strong and there might well be a couple of smaller fruits to play with for Halloween. Not really suitable for eating (or at least not the flesh).... I will be getting the seeds back from my brother after his kids have had their fun, and assuming there's enough of them I will be roasting a few, they're enormous things too... then to see if I can 't make a better pace for them next year... bigger pile of poo for a start, and hopefully negotiate with new plot neighbour for chicken manure...
