Which state grows the most pumpkins?

Spooky month is almost over unfortunately. With all the pandemic fatalities, the upcoming election, and confusion coming from White House I thought some pumpkin fun would be cool. This bit of trivia comes via Microsoft Bing:

This patch is in the Canadian province of British Columbia, a region known for growing some of the largest pumpkins in the world. In the US, California grows the most pumpkins sold to consumers, but Illinois is the champion in overall pumpkin production—in 2018 it supplied 500 million pounds of pumpkins to producers of canned pumpkin purée, which is used in pie filling and other treats.
