Does anybody know what the heaviest kettle gourd ever was? I know it isn't a separate class as it is basically a bushel gourd with a neck.
Has anyone grown one over 170lbs?

I Believe the 140 Urena is the current heaviest.

In 2014 I grow a 173lbs African-Kettle-Gourd ( 93.5 Offermann x sibb ) who was accepted form the EGVGA at least as a European Record,.....Doug English even things it would be a world record.

Martin, that gourd is listed as UOW. It wasn't weighed at a weigh-off?

That gourd is listed UOW, was weighed on a bathroom scale as far as I know, and was not accepted by the EGVGA as an official European record.
