Fact of the Day: World's Largest Pumpkin

The average weight of a pumpkin is roughly 10-20 pounds, but farmers have grown some much bigger. The world record was just broken this month by Ron Wallace. His pumpkin debuted at a local fair, and weighed in at 2,009 pounds.

  2. Every time my kids get a pumpkin, they choose the smallest one they can find. I can't even carve them because they are so small. :P

  5. 2000 pounds? That's a lot of guts to shovel out if you want to carve it. No thanks.
