I have a resource where kids can learn some fun and informative facts about pumpkins, just the thing for this time of year. I wanted to update that a record has again been broken for the biggest pumpkin!
Ron Wallace of Greene, Rhode Island, has grown a pumpkin that weighed in at 2010 pounds!The first pumpkin to ever weigh over a ton, crushes the previous record set in 2001 by Chris Stevens. His pumpkin tipped the scales at 1820. 8 ounces. Wallace said that at one point, his whopper of a pumpkin was growing about 35 pounds per day. Each seed from his record pumpkin will be worth between $300 and $1000 dollars-wow!
