Big Max Pumpkins

The Big Max variety has produced some big pumpkins, as billed, and has also lasted longest into the summer heat. The Jack-o-lantern variety produced more pumpkins, but they are smaller, and the plants have withered up for the most part by now. The Big Max pumpkins are still going strong.


  1. Justin-

    I live in Phoenix. I planted pumpkins at the beginning of September and the vines are doing great. Beautiful flowers, but no fruit is forming. Do you have any idea what might be causing this?

    Thanks much, Lisa

  2. Gosh, Lisa, sorry, just realized this comment was here. I thought I had settings for email notification, woops. Anyway...

    Sounds like a polination problem. Either instruct your insects to get to work, or you can hand pollinate!
