Dose this look ready for harvesting?

Hi steve.

I've never eaten one before so I don't really know. But they seem more juicy than the smaller ones, so I'm guessing that they don't have as much flavor as the smaller variety's.

Hi bekki. 

Thanks for your reply, one side of the stem has turned but the other is green. Since I've left it it seems to have got heavier but not much bigger (if that makes sense). It's got to a nice size now, I'm thinking it must be around the 70-80lb mark now! 

Here's a pic with something to compare the size to.

 and this is the one that just started to die.

It's an Atlantic giant, the one that I grew last year went a strong orange colour but that was grown in hydroponics and I pumped it with potassium. Thanks for a second opinion though. I think I will leave it a little longer.

Hello everyone.

I checked on my giant pumpkins today and one of them has rotted from the bottom up, but it was sitting on a upside down plastic water butt bottom. I also have to more larger ones that look slightly more ready to be plucked, but I think that I need a second opinion. As it's the largest pumpkin I have ever grown, and I would be really gutted if it rots like the other one, What do you think?

O.K thanks for your advice. If Ailsa craig can be overwintered I think I will try them next year. Come to think of it i bought my Senshyu from Wilkos.
