The Giant Pumpkins Arrive!

Posted in Behind the Scenes , Videos on October 22, 2021, by Matt Newman

They’re gigantic, they’re orange, and they’re finally here—this year’s enormous gourds have arrived at the Garden for Giant Pumpkin Weekend.

Learn more about these heavyweights now on display at NYBG through October 31, including where they come from, who grew them, and how much they clock in at on the scale (the smallest of the three still weighs over a ton).

And while you’re here this weekend, don’t miss Adam Bierton’s pumpkin carving demos from 1–4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday!
