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. Wonder how many Pumpkin Spice Lattes you could make with a pumpkpkin that size.
