The New York Botanical Garden is currently hosting the world’s heaviest pumpkin, and starting today the world-renowned pumpkin carver, and current holder of the Guinness Book‘s World Record for largest jack-o’-lantern, Scott Cully has taken to the task of carving it up. All 1,810.5 pounds of it. Check it out today, tomorrow, or Sunday... after that, it's time here is up. Wonder if they can launch it from a trebuchet?

If you catch the carving in action, or the final result, send us your photos or tag them "Gothamist" on Flickr!
