This pumpkin is looking just about as meaty as the 2005 Haist from last year (pictured below). The 1325 is a seed from the 2005. Some notes. 2005 Haist had much taller leaves and was pollinated two weeks later, so the pics are a little deceptive in terms of the size of the pumpkin. The 2005 had beautiful leaves at the end of July. This plant's leaves are looking pretty old already on the first half of the plant. The 2005 stopped growing mid-September because of cold. If this 1325 can be a long grower and the weather is a little kind in September it has a chance to get to descent size, but I would be really surprised if it could match last years. Maybe if it goes 30% heavy. I don't plan on that, but I would give it a descent chance of going heavy.
