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.


RE: New World Record Pumpkin ! ! !

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.

Oh, that was Richmond Ontario, not Richmond BC. I live very close to Richmond BC.
