How

Big is it?

The Australian Giant Pumpkin &
Vegetable Society Inc
was formed last year to coordinate giant pumpkin
competitions and promote giant pumpkin growing across Australia by a group of
dedicated growers and competitors. The 1997 competition was held at two sites,
one in Western Australia, the other in Victoria. The 1998 competition,
conducted on 4 April, will see more sites participating, with confirmed sites
already in Western Australia, South Australia, Victoria, and Queensland. We are
also officially exchanging results with New Zealand who are holding their
competition on the same weekend, to ascertain the (yet to be named) Champion.

The current Australian Heaviest Pumpkin is
258.4kgs and was grown in 1998 in Victora and the quality of all competing
pumpkins is increasing annually.

APPLICATION FOR MEMBERSHIP

Sadly we have to close the Australian Giant Pumpkin & Vegetable
Society Inc (AGPVS), and are hoping you would remove reference to
it from your site. Thank you so much for all the help and support
you have given us over the years. Unfortunately, the group ended
up comprising of onlya few people.
We have
had to cancel our competition we had planned for this year, because
no-one seems to have any pumpkins. The weather has been really bad
this year for pumpkins, very cool, it is the end of summer in 13
days, and
we are only getting two continuous days over 100.

Atlantic Seeds is still in operation.

Thanks again, all the best, Wendy Stayner (Australia)
