Georgy Kryukov, a resident of Orenburg, grew a 400-kilogram pumpkin on his dacha plot, the Russian Ministry of Agriculture said.
"Georgy has been growing pumpkins on his dacha plot for a number of years. In 2020, the harvest was also good, the weight of the giant vegetable was 200 kilograms," - clarified in the ministry.
This year, the Russian citizen decided to change his approach to growing: he planted the same variety of pumpkin "Atlantic Giant" in a greenhouse, having changed the methodology of plant formation. It is expected that by the end of August the weight of the pumpkin can reach half a ton.
