Giant fruit

To grow giant fruits plant several seeds in a hill made from almost pure compost and thin to the best plant. Feed weekly with manure tea or fish emulsion and only allow one fruit to develop on each plant. You could allow three to grow if you just want big ones for your own use. This is how they grow the giant Pumpkins.
