Swiss grower Beni Meier has grown the world's heaviest pumpkin.  Beni weighed his behemoth pumpkin weighing in at 2,323 pounds. What was unprecendented is that he had pumpkins tip the scales at 2096 and 2,102, both world records, in the weeks prior to weighing his biggest pumpkin.  A massive congratulations to Beni and the results he has achieved this growing season.

ColoradoPumpkins.com -- Drop Z'em Hard!

What a way to end the season! Dan Daru and KDVR joined the RMGVG at Jared's Nursery and Garden center where we wrapped up the growing season by dropping three pumpkins: 500, 600 and 1000 pounds from over 100 ft up!
