Where can I obtain vegetable seeds from world record holders? Does anyone have a comprehensive list of the variety names of any type of giant vegetables?

The only name that comes to My mind is Howard Dill, the pumpkin king. He is in Windsor Nova Scotia, B0N 2T0. Windsor is small enough that that will be sufficient. Seed catalogues like Vessies from PEI might carry giant veg seeds too.

Good Luck

Paul; As promised, I found out the name of the large Onion. It is:Kelsae. Hole's in Edmonton have it listed in their Spring 2000 Catalouge. They have a website: holesonline.com. Hope this works for you. Keep us informed next fall on your laaaaaaarge vegetables.
