Pumpkins Are Huge As Halloween Approaches
This is What's Trending Today:
October might seem to be pumpkin month in the U.S.
The holiday of Halloween comes on October 31. Americans around the country are already using social media to show off their pumpkin growing and carving skills.
Pumpkins are round, orange fruits related to squashes and gourds. People use their flesh and seeds for food, but they are also popular decorations in the fall.
Two big pumpkins recently made headlines in the U.S.
A farmer in the northeastern state of Rhode Island broke the record for the largest pumpkin ever grown in North America.
Richard Wallace's pumpkin weighed 1,026 kilograms. It broke his son's record from 2015. Ron Wallace's pumpkin only weighed 1,011 kilograms last year.
A schoolteacher in the northwestern state of Washington brought her large pumpkin to an event in California. Her pumpkin was the champion, weighing 866 kilograms.
It turns out that Cindy Tobeck's pumpkin grew from one of the seeds from Ron Wallace's pumpkin from 2015.
While those pumpkins are large, they are still not the largest in the world.
According to the website BigPumpkins.com, Richard Wallace's pumpkin is only the second-heaviest pumpkin of the year. A man in Belgium produced a pumpkin that weighed almost 1,200 kilograms.
Smithsonian magazine wrote a story about people who try to grow large pumpkins. In 35 years, the size of record pumpkins has grown from about 225 kilograms to over 1,000 kilograms.
Pumpkin farmers trying to grow record fruits are taking the seeds of champion pumpkins from one year and breeding them with other large pumpkins.
But people are not just growing pumpkins. They are carving them, too.
One Twitter user from Britain recently posted a photo of a pumpkin designed to look like U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump.
No word of a Hillary Clinton pumpkin design. But one pumpkin farmer in California allows visitors to shoot small pumpkins out of a cannon.
The targets? Large paper cut-outs of both Trump and Clinton.
And that's What's Trending Today.
