The Zambito family has their pride and joy on display just outside their home.
John Zambito grew the pumpkin from seeds he purchased on the Internet: He and his family started growing it in their boiler room and then transferred it to a patch of land upstate.
When it came time to harvest, the 502 lbs monster took six people to move into the car. The family says it's caused quite a stir on their block and that they have a hard time convincing people that it's real.
But in case you're wondering, it's not the biggest pumpkin this Halloween. That title belongs to a Wisconsin giant weighing 1,810.5 lbs.
