The results are in!

Scott Carley’s GIANT PUMPKIN placed 1st in BC again this year!!! He squashed his own record (1,427.5 pounds) with a HUGE 1,543 pound pumpkin, and set a new record for the province of BC!!!

Scott Carley now holds the distinction of having cultivated the heaviest pumpkin in BC history!!! The previous provincial record, held by Jake Van Kooten of British Columbia, was also once the WORLD RECORD in 2008, with a pumpkin tipping the scales at 1,536 pounds! Fun fact, Mathias Willemijns of Belgium, presently holds the WORLD RECORD since 2016, with a massive pumpkin at 2,624.6 pounds!!!
