Wisconsin’s largest pumpkin is now in Eau Claire.
Master Gardener Brian Mathiowetz says his pumpkin, Macie, weighed in at just over 24 hundred pounds last weekend. That makes his pumpkin the largest in Wisconsin history. Mathiowetz says he started growing giant pumpkins about five years ago, and has no plans to stop. The old record for largest pumpkin in Wisconsin was two-thousand-283 pounds, much smaller than Macie.
