It won the annual Safeway World Championship Pumpkin weigh-off in Half Moon Bay on Monday, beating last year's winner who grew a 1,775-pound pumpkin.
Miller won a prize of $11,910, which comes out to $6 per pound.
He also got an extra $1,000 for having the heaviest pumpkin from the state of California.
