Unbelievably, it’s over a ton! We knew someday, someone would grow a giant, make that enormous, one ton pumpkin. With this firm belief, every serious, giant pumpkin grower set out to to be the one to produce the first one ton pumpkin. We congratulate Ron Wallace, from Greene, Rhode Island on this remarkable accomplishment. The tiny state of Rhode Island looms large in the world of giant pumpkins. Ron brought his 2009 pound pumpkin to the Topsfield Fair in Topsfield, MA on September 28, 2012. Ron is no newbie in the hobby growing giant pumpkins. In 2006, he broke the the world record. At that time, all it took was a mere 1,502 pounds to break the world record. Just how big can pumpkins grow? Who knows… the sky’s the limit.
