From October 21 to October 29 at the New York Botanical Garden three of the largest pumpkins in the world are on display: a 2 lb (469 kg) giant fruit grown by Steve Sperry of Rhode Island; its 1 lb (119 kg) competitor bred by Ron Wallace, also of Rhode Island; and a 2-pound (344,5 kg) pumpkin grown by Scott Andrush of New York.

They can be seen every day from 10:00 to 18:00 at the Leon Levy Visitor Center. ForumDaily New York correspondent Olesya Vishnevskaya also went to admire the orange giants. She returned with a lot of impressions and a dozen stunning photographs. We’ll show you the photos now, but for impressions, go yourself. But hurry up! Exhibition will stay in New York only until October 29.

There will be even more excitement this weekend as one of the giant pumpkins will be turned into a Halloween lantern. This will be done in front of garden visitors by artist Adam Birton, winner of the Halloween Wars competition on the Food Network channel.

Well, stop stalling. Let's move on to the photo!

Here she is, the heroine of the month - the largest pumpkin in the world. This giant fruit was grown by Steve Sperry from Rhode Island.
