Pollinated the 335 Scherber this Morning

The 335 Scherber pumpkin seed is a cross of a clone of a plant that produced a 1663 pound pumpkin with a clone of a plant that produced a 1725 pound pumpkin.  I crossed that plant with pollen from a pumpkin plant that is a clone of the plant that was crossed with itself that produced the world record 2009 pumpkin.  On paper this is a pretty nice cross.

The female that I pollinated this morning was a nice looking 5 lobe flower.  As mentioned before, if this pollination takes, I'll grow this pumpkin and take off the earlier pillination because this one has better position on the vine.
