Pumpkin has just won the largest record in the UK, weighing more than 854kg.
The record-breaking pumpkin of this year is 1.37m high; circumference more than 5.2m. Mirror said the pumpkin was planted in April by twins Ian and Stuart Paton and brought to the annual competition held in October at the Royal Victoria Park in Netley, England. The Paton brothers held this record before being overtaken last year by another pumpkin weighing nearly 690kg.
Just a few days before their record was established, a 717kg pumpkin from Mark Bagg farmer from Dorset County was said to win.
"Mark is a good friend, we have known each other for more than 10 years. Last year he was the record holder," Ian said.
The Paton brothers were delighted to get closer to the world's largest pumpkin record, currently recorded at over 920kg. They are confident that they will soon conquer this record in the future.
"The secret behind a giant pumpkin is that we know how to nurture it. If you want to grow anything, you need to know how to take care of it," Ian said.
