I wonder how many pies this thing could make? A Connecticut man’s pumpkin recently won the New England Pumpkin Weigh Off when it checked in at an amazing 2,294.5 pounds! It literally crushed the competition!
Alex Noel’s pumpkin easily won the contest but fell short of the world record for the heaviest pumpkin ever grown. That distinction goes to Mathias Willemijns of Belgium whose pumpkin weighed 2,624.6 in 2016.
Now for a little perspective on Noel’s pumpkin: the pumpkin weighs more than a Mitsubishi Eclipse which weighs 2,018 pounds! Now that’s one heavy pumpkin!
