For the second time in only a matter of days, the world record for the heaviest pumpkin ever grown has been broken.

The first celebration was Thursday night in Deerfield, New Hampshire, where a pumpkin weighing 1,843.50 pounds broke the previous Guinness World Record of 1,810.5 set by a Minnesota man in October 2010.

Champion grower Steve Geddes told WMUR9 that by mid-August, his winning pumpkin was adding weight at an astounding 35 pounds per day.

Geddes’ record-breaking pumpkin elation was short-lived, however, after Rhode Islands’ Ron Wallace delivered a behemoth Friday tipping the scales at 2,009 pounds. It’s the first pumpkin ever to cross the 1-ton mark; netting Wallace over $15k ($5,500 for first place and another $10,000 as a bonus for breaking the one-ton mark.)

To see what it’s like to break the world record for heaviest pumpkin, check out this video of Wallace’s winning entry below. His reaction is pretty awesome.

    Sorry the previous pumkin record holder was Chris Stevens from New Richmond, WI. I just wanted to set the record straight, not that it matters anymore.

  • Haha lol

    They should cut a big hole in the side and have a bunch of normal sized pumpkins spilling out !!!
