That's one great pumpkin, Charlie Brown! A New York farmer grew a pumpkin so great it not only broke a state record but it's the heaviest in the country.

Scott Andrusz, of Clarence, New York, set a new record for America's heaviest pumpkin at The Great Pumpkin Farm's annual World Pumpkin Weigh-Off on Saturday, October 1. The 2,554-pound gourd beat the old record by 26 pounds.

World Record Pumpkin

Scott and his team, Andrusz Giants, were a long way from the world record. That belongs to Stefano Cutrupi, a man in Italy whose Guinness World Record pumpkin weighed in at 2,702 pounds back in 2021.

$5,000 Pumpkin

Andrusz Giants pumpkin brought home the $5,000 grand prize and the honor of being called a record breaker in New York and the country.

To put things into perspective, the winning pumpkin had to be brought in by a crane. It's heavier than some small cars. A Ford Fiesta only weighs 2,537 pounds.
