World Largest Pumpkin Records

World Largest Pumpkin Records

Welcome the original pumpkin record page. This is the official page for identifying the World heaviest pumpkin records per country. 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. Please question me on these records. 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.

What does the table show below? It seems simple.. you will see the country, state, name, location, weight and the year.

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,

    Woodstown, NJ; Giant pumpkin growers and pumpkin enthusiast have been planting seeds, watering, and fertilizing and burying vines from spring to fall, as they prepare for their moment in the spot light. Pumpkin growers and backyard gardeners are being invited to bring their heaviest pumpkin out to the South Jersey Pumpkin Show Giant Pumpkin Weigh Off on Sunday, October 14th, at the Salem County Fairgrounds, Woodstown, New Jersey. Festival goer will have an opportunity to meet the growers and walk around the pumpkins and take many pictures. The growers will be on hand to talk about the hard work that goes into growing giant pumpkins and how they save seeds for 2019.

    If you’re a pumpkin grower this is a great late season opportunity to show off your prize pumpkin and potentially win a portion of the cash prize money up for grabs. Pumpkins can be grown in New Jersey, New York, Maryland, Delaware and Pennsylvania. These giant pumpkins will start arriving at the Festival fairgrounds on Sunday from 9am to 11:30am. Weigh Off will start at noon and giant pumpkins will be on exhibit until 5pm. Pumpkins must weigh at least 100 pounds to participate. All entries will be weighed on a certified scale supplied by Fairbanks Scales. Contest is free to enter, and growers can find full details at or call 856-765-0118.


    2600lbs! Unreal! How is that even possible? And imagine how many pumpkin pies you could make with a pumpkin like that… I hope they at least cut it open afterwards and made it into a giant jack-o-lantern!


    It’s a great pumpkin.
