Big Max is a large variety of pumpkin of the species Cucurbita maxima that can exceed 100 pounds and 20 in in diameter under ideal growing conditions. They are often bright orange in color, with fine-grained, yellow-orange flesh. The skin, deeply ribbed and slightly roughened, can grow to be 3 inches thick, making them favorable for storage.
Big Max is the choice of giant pumpkin growers. Unlike some large pumpkins that are just blobs, Big Max is round and has smooth, light-orange skin and is perfect for Halloween carving or other holiday decorations. Excellent for canning, freezing or pumpkin pies.
