Exclusive | Smart Support for Growing Perfect Pumpkins and Watermelons
Harvest uniform, perfectly ripe, blemish-free fruit
Display Jack-o'-lanterns and carved watermelons
Reversible; large side holds fruits up to 30 pounds
Growing pumpkins is so much fun, but can be frustrating when the fruits are misshapen or rot before they ripen. These ingenious supports elevate pumpkins, squash and melons up off the ground, allowing air to circulate. This promotes even ripening and minimizes rot. Fruit stays cleaner and develops a more uniform shape. The smaller side of the pedestal supports a pumpkin up to 10" in diameter and weighing up to 20 pounds. Flip it over and the larger side holds a mature pumpkin up to 14" and 30 pounds. Reusable; stack for compact off-season storage.
I received a set of these as a gift in May of this year. When my pumpkins finally started to grow a few weeks ago, I put the pedestals under 3 of them. This afternoon, I went out to see how they were doing, and each of the 3 pumpkins on the pedestals were rotted/dead! The other pumpkins that are on the ground are all growing just fine!

Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
We ordered one set and when we saw how well they worked, we ordered two more sets. The only pumpkin that rotted on the vine was one that was not on a pedestal. Having a different size on each size worked out great with all the different sizes and shapes of the pumpkins.
