Keith Edwards, of rural Albion, has been growing giant pumpkins for the last six years. This year his pumpkins were ranked the second, third and fourth largest pumpkins in Indiana – of all time. His largest (center in photo above) weighs 1,679 lbs. and ranks 80th in the world. The largest pumpkin in the world reportedly belongs to a Belgian man and weighs 2,624.5 lbs. During the growing season, Edwards spends two to three hours a day tending to his pumpkin patch. He says he won’t grow pumpkins next season, allowing his prolific, potent patch time to regain nutrients in the soil.
