Official State Fruit of New Hampshire

New Hampshire designated pumpkin as the official state fruit in 2006. The pumpkin festival held in Keene, NH, for 24 years showcased thousands of carved pumpkins, and held the world record for the highest number of lit jack-o’-lanterns multiple times. In 2013 it set a  new world record with 30,581 lit jack-o’-lanterns. The festival moved to Laconia, New Hampshire in 2015 for its 25th spectacular year. All Food & Agriculture Symbols
