Twin brothers grow enormous 2,270lb pumpkin to break own UK record 

15 Oct

Twin brothers who have made it their mission to create the biggest ever pumpkin have smashed the UK record by growing a vegetable weighing 2,269lb.

Stuart and Ian Paton, 56, have spent hundreds of hours over four months tending to their record-breaking pumpkin which they submitted at the Autumn Pumpkin Festival in Netley, Hampshire.

They already held the UK record with their impressive 2,254lb pumpkin from last year, but have beaten it again just 12 months later.

The brothers say they can use up to 100 gallons of water a day to help their gigantic squashes grow, which can increase in weight by as much as 60lb a day.

The pair, of Lymington, Hampshire, have been addicted to growing the enormous pumpkins now for the last ten years.
