World's Largest Pumpkin 2013 Reportedly Weighs 2,032 Pounds

We were pretty impressed last year when Ron Wallace of Rhode Island grew a pumpkin weighing an astounding 2,009 pounds. But little did we know, this year would bring a new champ for the title of world's largest pumpkin.

According to a press release by the New York Botanical Garden, Tim and Susan Mathison from California have grown a squash that weighs... wait for it... 2,032 pounds -- wowza!

ABC-7 KIVA reports that it took the Mathinsons 105 days for this baby to blossom into its extreme size.

Need to see it to believe it? We don't blame you. Luckily, the NYBG will have this (and the world's largest watermelon) on display from October 19 through October 31. Head over to the New York Botanical Garden and ABC-7 KIVA for more information.
