World's Largest Pumpkin? World Record Broken At European Championship With Massive Gourd

IB Times: World

Fall is the season of harvest, abundance and, apparently, for giant pumpkin-growing contests around the world. This year, the Giant Pumpkin European Championship was held in Ludwigsburg, located in southwestern Germany, and a specimen at the championship took home the award for the heaviest pumpkin. The pumpkin, which entered the "weight-off" Sunday, weighed in at 1.190,5 Kg. (or around 2,623 pounds), according to ABS CBN.
