The world's largest pumpkin variety 

Pumpkin Atlantic Giant is the number one choice for growing a real giant. Tasty flesh also makes it great for kitchen use. An excellent source of vitamin A. 

Staff Pumpkin Competition 2014
Green-fingered Laura (as pictured), who works in our mail order division, fought off the challenge from 12 colleagues to grow the heaviest pumpkin in a staff competition this year. All the competitors were allowed to choose their own company-grown young plant of proven heavyweight Atlantic Giant, and then tended it personally on the trial ground, nurturing it however they wished in the hope of producing the heaviest pumpkin.  

At the official weigh-in in late October, Laura's pumpkin was recorded at 50.1kg. She commented "I used to grow my own Halloween pumpkins when I was younger but this was my first attempt in many years. To be honest I didn’t fuss over my pumpkin excessively. I just gave it some feed as the fruits were beginning to form. The plant gave me two good sized pumpkins – the winner plus another which weighed in at 30.1kg. In theory I should have removed this second fruit, but both have been put to good use and now carved ready for Halloween".
