Ron Wallace Grows The Largest Pumpkin, Breaking World Record (VIDEO)

It's that time of year we've all been waiting for: pumpkin-picking season! To get in the Halloween spirit, you're probably heading to a pumpkin patch or farmer's market near you to find a few to decorate, carve and adorn your home with this holiday. But we bet you've never seen a pumpkin quite like this one before. Ron Wallace from Greene, RI, has grown a pumpkin that weighs a whopping 2,009 pounds, making it not only the largest pumpkin in history, but also the largest fruit ever grown in the world. This massive pumpkin officially weighed in at over a ton at the Topsfield Fair in Topsfield, MA last Friday, making its owner proud (and bringing tears to his eyes). Check out the video above to get a glimpse of the giant gourd.
