The uniqueness of the variety lies in its capacity to produce fruits larger than those produced by any other plant in the world, exceeding 6 feet (1.8 m) in diameter. The heaviest Atlantic Giant on record weighed 2,032 pounds (922 kg) and was grown by Tim Mathison in 2012.

How To Grow Pumpkin is a hot weather crop. They need full sun and deep, rich, well drained, organic soil with a pH of 5.5 to 6.5. Before planting, work in lots of compost. Sow seed directly outdoors from late May through early June 2.5 cm (1") deep in hills 2.4 m (8') apart with 4-6 seeds per hill. After germination, thin to 3 plants per hill. Seed can be started indoors 3 weeks before the plant out date. Pumpkins do not transplant well--use paper or fibre pots that can be set directly in the soil. For competition sized pumpkins, allow only two pumpkins per plant to mature. Protect mature pumpkins from frost and cold temperatures. Each packet contains 8 seeds.
