Right side: 692 Wolf 21 (1552 Young x sib)
There were two other pumpkins the were lost to rot late season on the plant - one open pollinated around 400#, and another estimating 338# that was pollinated with the 2268 LeBlanc. Some seeds were saved from the 338.

The pollinating plant to the 692 was grown by Tim Bailey and had a beautiful fruit that was lost before the weighoff estimating over 1200#
