Jucker Farmart Pumpkin Battle



Switzerland - Z├╝rich


From: 2015.10.31 To: 2015.10.31



Official website:



Rather than growing a record size pumpkin yourself, and figuring out a way to get it to Zurich, why don't you just attend Jucker Farmart Pumpkin Battle as an observer. Jaws certainly drop wide open when they see the pumpkins of such epic proportions hauled to this Swiss city. Growing an enormous pumpkin is no easy feat. "Feeding" necessitates fertile rich soil that is fertilized often, with a constant stream of water. Even the most skilled green-fingered one will still require a little luck to beat the current record of 534 kilograms. However, plenty of Europeans make the trek to compete, and if there isn't any pumpkin pie afterwards, be sure to try some of Zurich's apple strudel with cream. It's an autumn feast.
