Welcome the original largest pumpkin record page. This is the official page identifying the heaviest pumpkins in the world per country.
This is the current 2019 list of the Top 10 largest pumpkins grown to date. The majority of these pumpkins were grown in the USA, but 3 of the largest pumpkins were grown in Europe.
It takes a lot of time and effort to grow these huge pumpkins. The majority of these pumpkin growers have failed during the growing process. One of the factors in growing a large pumpkin is the seed, watering, burying the vine node, and removing other pumpkins on the plant.
Let’s take a look at our current Top 10 pumpkin growers. If you want to see the pumpkin records, please scroll down the page.
10. 2283 pounds Barlow / Jacobus
This team just made the cutoff with a 2283 pounder. They grew this pumpkin in Gray Mills, WI, and had it officially weighed in at the Bloomfield Giant Pumpkin Bash in 2018.
9. 2294.5 pounds by Alex Noel
Alex grew this beast in Abington Pomfret, CT in 2019 and is proud to make the top 10. Maybe this year he’ll better his weight. His pumpkin was weighed in at the New England Giant Pumpkin Weigh-Off
8. 2323.7 pounds by Beni Meier
Beni is excited to grow this 2323.70 pound pumpkin in Pfungen Switzerland in 2014. I would assume this is a record for Switzerland, but you have to scroll down the page to see all the pumpkin records for Europe.
7. 2363 pounds by Joel Holland
Joel is the grandfather of all the pumpkin growers. I feel he’s been growing pumpkins for 25 years and each year knocks one out of the park. This personal best was grown in 2017 and was weighed in at the Half Moon Bay Weigh-off. Most of the West coast growers take their pumpkin to Half Moon Bay for the large prize money. I wonder how much Joel made with this beast of a pumpkin.
6. 2416.5 pounds by Karl Haist
Karl has some secret that he isn’t telling anyone. He has two pumpkins in the Top 10. What do you think it is? Seeds or just plain luck. I don’t know but I wish I knew. This is a 2018 pumpkin that was weighed Ohio Valley Giant Pumpkin Growers Weigh-Off. Karl grew it at Clarence Center New York
5. 2433.9 pounds by Ian & Stuart Patron
Ian & Stuart are from Lymington, UK. This is the largest pumpkin to date grown in the United Kingdom. I think they have the advantage of being close to the tropical ocean weather in the southern UK. This pumpkin was weighed in at Royal Victoria Country Park.
4. 2469.5 pounds by Steve Daletas
Steve is a seasonal grower who constantly grows large pumpkins. This 2018 pumpkin was grown in Pleasant Hill OR, but it had a fault with the pumpkin and couldn’t win a ribbon. Even if the pumpkin didn’t win a ribbon, it’s still a very large pumpkin.
3. 2517 pounds by Karl & Beverly Haist
What? Karl has another large pumpkin? Amazing.. This pumpkin was also grown in Clarence Center New York in 2019.
2. 2528 pounds by Steve Geddes
As we approach the end of the Top 10 pumpkins, Steve grew this 2018 pumpkin in Boscawen, New Hampshire. Per the photos, we see a lot of happy people dwarfed by the huge pumpkin. The pumpkin was weighed at Deefield Fair
1. 2624.6 pounds by Mathias Willemijns
The largest pumpkin to date and the World Record goes to Mathias Willemijns from Deurle, Belgium. As a World Record, it is the largest pumpkin for Belgium. The pumpkin was weighed at the European Pumpkin Weigh-Off in 2016. Four years and still no one can come close to this record.
If you have a pumpkin record, and you don’t see your country, please send me an e-mail and I will address several questions. I even had one person submit a record for some Island that I thought was part of France, but upon review, it was an independent country.
Of course, your pumpkin must be weighed on a certified scale. I won’t accept a photo of five bathroom scales or some other funky method.

Records apply to the location they were grown. If you grew the pumpkin on the four square, sure, I’ll give you credit for each State. Hopefully, the growers live in the same place as they grow their pumpkin. If you live in one state and you grow the pumpkin in another state, your record will be listed with a footnote describing your record. Email me with your stats, mcalpin1 @ yahoo.com
