Steve Geddes from Boscawen, New Hampshire has grown the largest pumpkin North America has ever seen

Where would you expect the largest pumpkin in North America to come from? If you guessed New Hampshire, then you would be correct. Steve Geddes of Boscawen, New Hampshire just grew the largest pumpkin ever recorded in U.S. history - the giant pumpkin weighs an astonishing 2,528 pounds. Thanks to his gigantic pumpkin, Geddes was able to take home $6,000 in prize money this week after winning first place at the Deerfield Fair.

According to The Great Pumpkin Commonwealth, Geddes’ pumpkin is not only the largest pumpkin ever grown in North America but is only 100 pounds short of being the heaviest pumpkin ever grown period. According to Guinness World Records, the previous record holder was Belgium’s Mathias Willemijns. Willemijns was able to grow a 2,624-pound pumpkin back in 2016.
