South African giant pumpkin records database

I have been working on this database for a while now - it inculdes all records I have of giant pumpkins grown in South Africa. The database can be viewed here. It includes all the offical results from the following South African competitions:

PPV: Pniel Pampoenplanters Vereniging (Pniel Pumpkin Planters Association) - now the BGPGA
BGPGA: Boland Giant Pumpkin Growers Association
Shoprite Checkers Pampoenkompetisie
Goliat van Gat pumpkin competition

And also some unofficial weights from various other growers

Re: South African giant pumpkin records database

Geluk Drikus met daai nr 5 posisie op die lys. Jy het ook Suid-Afrika se grootste pampoen van 2007 gekweek! Sterkte met die komende groeiseisoen - ek het 'n gevoel daai rekord gaan nie meer lank staan nie!

Dankie vir die harde werk met die data basis. Dit was `n goeie idee. Hier kan `n mens al begin sien watter saad goed doen in ons weersomstandighede. Dit kan ons help om `n SA genepoel op te bou vir ons tipe weer.

Dit was seker een van die slegste jare om groot pampoen te plant. Hittegolwe, droogte en meeldou wat die pampoen nie wil he nie. Dit het my verbaas om te sien die mooi pampoene wat veral van die Kaap en Stilbaai uitgekom het. Sterkte vir volgende jaar hoop die weer is beter en groei hulle groot.

Re: South African giant pumpkin records database

I have updated the database with the results from this years Shoprite Checkers giant pumpkin competition that took place in Paarl. Congratulations to Johan du Plessis from Worcester - a new entrant into the top 10 list.

I am still waiting for results from the Goliat van Gat competitions that took place this month, and also their results from last year.

Note that I only include pumpkins weighing 30kg or more in the list.

Re: South African giant pumpkin records database

I have updated the database with the results from Shoprite Checkers giant pumpkin competition of 2010 and 2011, both of which took place in Brackenfell. It is interesting to note that the new top 10 includes 4 pumpkins from the 2011 competition.

Re: South African giant pumpkin records database

I have updated the database with the results from Shoprite Checkers giant pumpkin competition of 2012 and 2013. Looks like seeds and growing techniques are getting better. The top 10 now includes 6 pumpkins grown in 2013!
