The father-son combination of Brett and Miles Allitt won the heaviest pumpkin title at the Deniliquin Show on Saturday.
The master vege growers, who say they know a secret about cultivating big pumpkins but aren’t about to tell anyone, grew a monster one weighing 50.4kg to win 20L of Charlie Carp fertiliser and a ticket to the Deniliquin Blues & Roots Festival.
‘‘We’ve been growing it since October last year,’’ Bett said.
‘‘Our other pumpkin came in second place.’’
In the junior section, Adrian Mulham’s hard work in the garden paid off, with the youngster winning 20L Charlie Carp fertiliser and a $100 Muster HQ voucher for his 9.2kg pumpkin.
‘‘I’ve tried to grow big pumpkins twice before but this is the first time I’ve won,’’ Adrian said.
‘‘I’d like to thank by grandpa for watering it while I was away.’’
