We had a world record one grown here in Alaska about ten miles from where I live this year but you would have to look it up on the internet. Not as large I don't think as the one you are talking about.

I heard the Alaska pumpkin record was shattered this year. It was over 700lbs.

yes that's true, although the largest officially weighed pumpkin was grown last year and weighed 1458 lbs, however it had a small pin hole in it.
