New Montana State Record for Heaviest Pumpkin

How big can pumpkins grow in Montana? They can grow pretty massive! A pumpkin that was over 100 pounds heavier than the previous record was weighed at the Big Sky Giant Pumpkin Growers Association last Saturday.

The record breaking pumpkin from Kyle Koschmeder of Shelby weighed in at 1,168 pounds. The previous record was a measly 1,039 pounds.

The Great Falls Tribune reports the giant pumpkin is on display at Shelby Paint and Hardware. Koschmeder said he’s thinking about having the community help carve it into a jack-o-lantern for Halloween.

The world record for largest pumpkin is 2,009 pounds and was grown in Rhode Island. See a video of the world record breaking pumpkin below.
