There has been a bit of excitement over the weekend with the giant pumpkin world record having been broken by some Canadian growers.

Jim and Kelsey Bryson reached this feat by growing a pumpkin that was 1818.5 pounds, which by may calculations is 824.8 Kg’s, an impressive achievement no matter what measurement you use.

You can see the video of the event below:

I love it how the announcer reveals the numbers one by one backwards.

It is an impressive looking pumpkin, and with only a couple more weigh offs to go for the northern hemisphere growers, it will be interesting to see if this can be beaten.
