That is a fats pumpkin.
A New York farmer simply set nationwide and state data for heaviest pumpkin, showcasing a gourd the dimensions of a compact automobile at an Eric County farm throughout its annual pumpkin weighing contest.
The pumpkin, grown by Williamsville’s Scott Andrusz, weighed in at 2,554 kilos — roughly the dimensions of a small car — at Saturday’s occasion on the Great Pumpkin Farm. Based on the farm, Andrusz hoped to only break the state document, however he squashed the nationwide one, too.
This is not the primary time the Great Pumpkin Farm has been the location of historical past. It noticed the primary 1,000-plus-pound pumpkin throughout its 1996 Fall Competition — and that one made it into the Guinness Ebook of World Information.
Since then, it has seen pumpkins greater than double that weight, like Andrusz’s.
If you wish to see it for your self, the record-breaking pumpkin will likely be on show at The Great Pumpkin Farm by Oct. 16. Learn more here.
