PAMPOENSTALLETJIE (PUMPKIN FARM STALL)


I have often driven past the Pampoenstalletjie on the R62 between Worcester and Robertson promising to stop when not in a rush. I have now found the time to stop and look at the extraordinary display of pumpkins of all shapes, sizes and colours - totally fascinating!
The stall has been in existence for more than 30 years and even hosts an annual "Biggest Pumpkin" competition - the latest winning entry was in the region of 490 kg!  Still a way to go before getting to the world champion ... a monstrous 1 190,49 kg pumpkin grown in Belgium.
