Big is it?
The Australian Giant Pumpkin &
Vegetable Society Inc was formed last year to coordinate giant pumpkin
competitions and promote giant pumpkin growing across Australia by a group of
dedicated growers and competitors. The 1997 competition was held at two sites,
one in Western Australia, the other in Victoria. The 1998 competition,
conducted on 4 April, will see more sites participating, with confirmed sites
already in Western Australia, South Australia, Victoria, and Queensland. We are
also officially exchanging results with New Zealand who are holding their
competition on the same weekend, to ascertain the (yet to be named) Champion.
The current Australian Heaviest Pumpkin is
258.4kgs and was grown in 1998 in Victora and the quality of all competing
pumpkins is increasing annually.
