It has been just over a week since the NZ giant pumpkin record was broken by Aaron Akkerman in Marton and the NZ record has been broken again, this time by Tim Harris with a 754.5kg pumpkin weighed in at Hamilton yesterday.
1663 in pounds with a OTT of 433 it weighed almost exactly to the estimated weight, and didn’t want to go heavy as predicted by a lot of US growers.
More photos from The great Pumpkin Carnival will be up on the site tomorrow.
