Hi Westham, it did burn a little during a hot day 43 C and windy but so did most of my plants. The ones that burnt were all the fastest growing plants. We had a lot of days over 40 C this year, so it handled the heat not too bad.
I would highly recommend the 710, the plant I have has grown a 214 kg pumpkin on a side vine and a 3?? kg pumpkin on the main vine which is still growing slowly. The plant was a great grower, vines were big. The other 710 that was grown in Australia grew a 243 kg pumpkin ( 1st time grower ) and it now has a 130 kg Est growing on a side vine. The leaves didn't burn on his 710 plant.
The only little fault from what I have seen is the stems are a little short, but none have been a problem at all. If you have any other questions just e mail me at pipster333@hotmail.com I have grown a few other Wagler seeds.
