Twin brothers are hoping to smash the UK record for the biggest pumpkin ever with this monster squash.
Brothers Ian and Stuart Paton, 54, are hoping to beat their own record which was set at 1884 pounds last year.
This gigantic contender has a circumference of 17 feet 7 inches, and is an enormous 5.6 feet tall.
The pumpkin will be weighed on October 10 at the Autumn Pumpkin Festival in Netley, Hants, which raises money for the Jubilee Sailing Trust charity.
