Bill Foss is a record holding grower in Minnesota and he knows pumpkins. He's been growing giant pumpkins for 20+ years and how he's offering you the opportunity to get his select seeds from his pumpkins. The number one secret in growing giant pumpkins is growing from the right seeds. Let Bill help you.


  • 10 various seeds from Bill's Big Pumpkins. Bill's Big Pumpkin seeds are from giant pumpkins ranging in size from approximatley 300 lbs to just under 1000 lbs. These seeds were harvested from Bill's pumpkins.  The genetics in these seeds hold great potential, coming from plants weighing 800 lbs to over 2000 lbs, included previous world record holders.
  • All Bill's 2013 plants were pollinated with the 2009 Wallace.  Other growers across the world had great sucess with the 2009 Wallace seeds in 2013. Three of the largest pumpkins in 2013 came from the 2009 Wallace, two were over 2000lbs. 
  • Seed details.
    • 881.5 Foss (1770 Lieber x 2009 Wallace) 2013 Minnesota State Fair Winner harvested at 51 days and likely to produce huge very nice orange pumpkin.
    • 700 Foss est/dmg (1872 Wallace x 2009 Wallace), this one stopped growing around day 40,  so I harvested the seeds early.  This could be a sleeper, probably not a looker but a monster,
    • 533 Foss (1498 Werner x 2009 Wallace) was a nice solid orange pumpkin, great genetics to produce nice big pretty pumpkins.
    • 429 Foss (881.5 Foss x 881.5 Foss) 2014 Minnesota Stair Fair 3rd Place Winner.
    • 300 est Foss (1082 Foss X 2009 Wallace). Grown solely for a genetic cross, the 1082 (1674 Marsh x 1630 Marsh) was my largest pumpkin grown in 2012 nice orange, should be capable of some pretty monsters.
    • 270 AFoss (781 Osmenson x 2009 Wallace) 2013 Minnesota State Fair Youth Winner grown by my grandson. The 781 is a very pretty orange producer year after year this one should a winner in the pretty contest.
