It’s pumpkin season and farmers all over have been trying to grow the heaviest pumpkin for months now.
On Monday a 2,560-pound pumpkin was entered into a contest at a fair in California. It won and was officially declared the heaviest pumpkin in U.S. The guy who grew it is from Minnesota and drove all the way out west just to submit it.
The largest pumpkin ever grown by a Connecticut resident was a 2,294 pound pumpkin last year grown by a guy named Alex Noel from Northeast part of the state
A lot of farmers say the drought this year has lead to pumpkins growing smaller than usual or cracking as they get bigger. So maybe next year we can get a Connecticut pumpkin to break that record.
