1220 & 695 Johnson Root Systems

I did some test plantings of the 1220 Johnson (1421 Stelts x 220 Debacco) & 695 Johnson (1775 Starr x 1725 Harp) seeds a few weeks ago.  Today I took the plants out of their pots to see what the root systems looked like on them.  The 695 plant (the pollinator was the world record plant that grew the 2,009lb pumpkin) which is on the left hand side of the picture is a week younger but you'll note it has a nice looking root system with some very large roots at the bottom.   The 1220 equally has a nice looking root system (pollinator was the 220 Debacco) and the plant was a very nice looking, stocky plant that grew quickly.  I think these seeds could do well this year.
