A superb pumpkin that produces enormous yellow/orange-skinned fruits - great for competitions, but also delicious to eat! 'Hundredweight' is one of the best varieties to grow for competitions as it puts on weight easily and will become very heavy if grown alone.
10 Seeds per packet.
Sow two seeds to a 10cm pot in late spring in a greenhouse or on a sunny windowsill. Pot on seedlings as they grow, then harden off carefully and plant out in a sunny, sheltered spot once all threat of frost has passed. Leave 90cm between each plant and protect from slugs. If space is limited, pinch out the growing tip after the main fruit has formed to keep the scrambling shoots in bounds.
