A one-ton pumpkin grown in Northern California has been declared the heaviest ever cultivated in North America, and an organisation is arranging to fly the giant gourd to New York where it will be featured in a botanical garden. The pumpkin, which was grown in Napa Valley north of San Francisco, was put on the scale on Monday at an event tied to the upcoming Half Moon Bay Pumpkin Festival and weighed in at 933kg, said festival spokesperson Tim Beeman.
