The largest pumpkin in the state of Florida is 989 pounds, and it just arrived in Tampa


The largest pumpkin in Florida is now on display at Bearss Grove in the city of Tampa.

The gigantic pumpkin arrived October 9 from Michigan, where Bearss Groves purchased it in an auction. 

The pumpkin is on display in front of the farmer’s market where visitors come from all over the area to enjoy the fall season with fresh produce and a pumpkin patch.  Visitors are encouraged to take photos in front of the pumpkin display, free of charge. Pet’s are also welcome. 

Bearss Groves sells a variety of locally-grown produce and has a large pumpkin patch open through the end of October. 

Explore Bearss Groves pumpkin patch, take photos, and relax under Bearss Groves very own 400-year-old Oak Tree. Fall attire welcome!

Bearss Groves is open seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. and is located at 14316 Lake Magdalene Blvd, Tampa, FL 33618
