It's nothing compared to the 1,810 pound pumpkin currently on its way to the NY Botanical Garden from Wisconsin... but it is home grown. Today the Daily News reports on Brooklyn's biggest pumpkin, residing in Kensington and weighing in at 502 pounds! That's enough pumpkin guts to make nearly 450 pumpkin pies!

The big guy is in front of MTA supervisor John Zambito's house on McDonald Avenue with a sign saying: "Yes, pumpkin is REAL!" This was placed there by his wife after skeptical passerby began to poke and prod it; she told the paper, "People are like, 'Let's dig [into] it with keys and see if it is real.' Well, it is real." Zambito grew the pumpkin upstate with the help of fish fertilizer and donkey manure—to get the thing to the city for Halloween, they had to take the backseat out of their car.

If you want to see it in person, it will be there until Thanksgiving... then it's got a date with a chainsaw. Linus & Co. would have never let The Great Pumpkin meet that kind of fate...
