50 days old, and the weigt is 333 kg/ 733,5 lbs. The circ is 357 cm/ 140,5", OTT 829 cm/ 326,4". The slow growing speed probably depends on two things:
1. The bad weather.
2. I think the pumpkin was overheated in the beginning. I normaly use a white blanket when I cover the pumpkin from the sun. I don't know why, but this year I used a dark blanket which overheated the pumpkin, and caused it to ripen to early. Every year I seem to learn something new.
