New European Smashing Pumpkin Record

Twin brothers Paton’s have set a new European smashing pumpkin record. The new smashing pumpkin weighed 1,457 lbs (around 660kgs).


The record-breaking pumpkin took 129 days to grow and was weighed using a special winch device at the Annual Pumpkin Show in Netley, near Southampton, Hants,

The Patons used a trailer pulled by a Volvo estate car to transport their giant vegetable to the show at Netley’s Royal Victoria Country Park where it was weighed in front of witnesses.

It was planted in a greenhouse in April and needed one and a half tonnes of manure to reach its current size.
