Meet the Butterball family
The 17 pumpkins listed below were all grown from a single pumpkin plant named Butterball (seed: 831 Zunino).  The plant covered a total of about 800 square feet when mature.  Most of these pumkins were removed young from the vine when they hit about 200 pounds.  All weights are estimated weights.
