The gourd is growing but the stress of being in a partly shaded spot and perhaps not being fertilized enough, I am afraid this may not be a record breaker. Obviously it is too early to call it a season; maybe all but my pumpkin in the state will be destroyed before weight off.
Don’t get me wrong, it is enormous! I just think that if it was going to weigh in at over 1000# it would be bigger by now. Still optimistic, though.
Based on OTT (over the top) measurements I estimate it at 50 pounds. And as far as being white, no idea if that is the color it will remain or if it will orange up as it matures.
