All of the females on the 1566 to this point are long and skinny shaped things. In the picture to the left you may see the female (aka the next state champ or bust). I like long shaped pumpkins because I believe it decreases the risk of some types of splits. If this female pollinates and becomes my keeper I will call it BubbaBoy.
The root system on the 1566 is really impressive. Whenever I trench for the vines I find tons of little white pumpkin roots everywhere. I hope this means a equally massive root system that runs deep and far.
