Gigantic, 1,200 pound pumpkin on display at Agricenter


MEMPHIS, Tenn. ( – While Halloween is still three weeks away, fall weather is here now and so are signs of the seasons: pumpkins.

But the pumpkins Country Gardens Memphis have are a big deal, a really big deal. Some of the pumpkins Lori and John McDaniel are showcasing at the Agricenter in east Memphis weigh 1,200 pounds.

The McDaniels say they love doing this every year for the kids.

“We bring them in every year so that all the children and families can come out because a lot of kids have never seen pumpkins this large,” said Lori McDaniel, owner of Country Gardens Memphis.

The gigantic gourds are on display at the Red Barn at the Agricenter.
