I believe it weighed about 1400 lbs. It was grown by a Zehr on the River Road I think and it was taken to several places to be shown. I think it won for the biggest one in NY at the state fair or something. It was quite a few years ago, and they did it with their grandchildren to see how big they could make it grow. They did this more than once. Did it make it into the Guiness Book of records?

Does anyone know if the Kraft Cheesecake was ever recognized by Guiness world book of records, because I thought they were trying for that the second year of the festival? Just wondering.
