Eddy Shaw of Charlottetown won for a fourth straight year in the 25th annual Giant Pumpkin Weigh-Off at Vesey’s Seeds in York.
Shaw’s pumpkin weighed in at 802 kilograms or 1,768 pounds which is a new record topping his own mark set last year at 723-kilograms.
The huge pumpkin was grown in his backyard.
Shaw says he gives his pumpkins lots of water – about two hours a night of watering over 80 days.
Shaw takes home $500 as the top prize.
