Time for the weigh-off 2023 in Kasterlee. First it looked like we were not going to reach a weight higher than 800kg.
Luckily Herman Boonen managed to grow a pumpkin heavier than 1 tonne: 1002kg to be precise. He was followed by Peter Jolie with 862kg and Cel Dierckx having a pumpkin of 727kg.
It didn’t stop at Belgian titles though, as Luc Vanheuckelom broke the European record for Squashes! He now sets the record at 842.5kg. Jef Leysen and Jens Segaert took the 2nd (542,5kg) and 3rd place (465,5kg).
Also check our pictures taken, as Marrows, Long Gourds and Field Pumpkins were also present.
