“Big things start small,” reads the caption of pumpkin-dedicated YouTube channel giantpumpkins nl. “The plant grew half a metre a day and the pumpkin grew with 17 kg a day, this pumpkin turned into a monster. See how amazing plants are!”

And this plant certainly is; it takes over a large garden area before the camera focuses on one protected giant pumpkin that grows to 635.5 kilograms, around 1,401 pounds.
