Circleville OH- We’ve done a bit of research, trying to find the current United States and World record Pumpkin weights. What we found is ginormous !
The current United States record was set in September of 2018 at the Deerfield New Hampshire Fair. The gigantic pumpkin was grown by Steve Geddes of New Hampshire and weighing in at an eye popping 2,528 pounds. Just shy of the current world record.
Here is a photo of the United States record breaking Pumpkin, courtesy of the Deerfield Fair Facebook page.
Now we will move along to the WORLD’S heaviest Pumpkin, which comes from Belgium. Mathias Willemijns grew a mammoth 2,624 pounder back in 2016 and still holds the record to date.
Here is a photo of the worlds heaviest Pumpkin and its grower, Mathias. Photo credit to the Guinness book of world records.
Do you think there will be a pumpkin at the Pumpkin Show to break either of these records ? We’re excited to find out !
