Monster Pumpkins

Raise a record-breaker!

We gave away 100 Monster Pumpkin seeds to Campaign for School Gardening schools around the UK in 2018 and ran a competition to see who could grow the heaviest one! The seeds were harvested from a 340kg, award-winning pumpkin grown by RHS fruit and vegetable expert, Matthew Oliver.

The results of the competition are now in! Take a look at our leaderboard to see how everyone who entered the competition got on, plus photos of the winners.

Want to try growing your own Monster Pumpkin?

Get hold of some giant pumpkin seeds of your own (we recommend  'Atlantic Giant' seeds for best results) and follow the advice in our Monster Pumpkins resources (see above, right) for tips and advice on how to grow a whopper next year!
