    Try growing your own monster pumpkins! Pumpkin ‘Dill’s Atlantic Giant’ holds the Canadian and American records for size, with fruits weighing in at over 800 kg (1763lb).

    This centuries-old French heirloom pumpkin looks just like the coach in the fairy tale Cinderella. The glowing orange color contrasts magically with the very pronounced lobes and flattened top. Tasty, orange flesh transforms pies and savory dishes.
