1353 DeBacco 19 (F: Outdoor 1989.5 dmg Daletas 17 x sibling (indoor plant)) 19% heavy

Official weigh-off OTT = 375.5
Team-Pumpkin estimated weight = 1137.5 pounds
Team-Pumpkin Enhanced Estimated weight range = 1038-1235.5 pounds

It is hard to believe I had this same exact weight back in 2008 and it was the Connecticut State Record. This pumpkin had a tall shape and the final weight was reduced due to the plant becoming infected with YVD (Yellow Vine Decline). However, I am happy to get it to the scale and very happy that it went so heavy to chart.

Also, when considering how heavy a pumpkin is to chart is one thing, I think is important to realize is what the general normal expected weight range is for any size pumpkin. This is why I have included the Team-Pumpkin estimated weight range for a pumpkin with an OTT of 375.5. To see the actual weight 9.5% over the upped expected weight range is an important factor to realize and also provide some context for just how dense this pumpkin was.
