    88 stone pumpkin!

    A German student has broken a European record after growing an 88 stone pumpkin.

    I'm assuming stone means pounds, cause I don't think you can grow a pumpkin made out of stone. :)

    Hi Mushy.... a stone is heavier than a pound - so it's way more than 88lbs.. we need someone to do the math :D

    I never heard of a stone in describing what something weighs. Maybe I need to get out more.

    A stone is 14 pounds - so that pumpkin was over 1200 pounds!

    Thats why I like getting weighed in England... saying your 9 stone sounds much better than 126pounds :crazy:

    And pretty good looking too, as compared to most very large pumpkins. They are usually misshapen, and have a mottled color.

    They are having the annual pumpkin weigh-off at Half Moon Bay, CA today. Heaviest so far is 1147 lbs. but there is at least one heavier one that hasn't been weighed yet. Stay tuned.
