World’s Largest Key Lime Pie is 1,000 pounds

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (NBC/FLORIDA KEYS NEWS BUREAU) — Florida Gov. Rick Scott helped serve the World’s Largest Key Lime Pie during a Florida Keys Day celebration in Tallahassee.

The massive pie’s ingredients on Tuesday included the juice of almost 6,000 tiny yellow-green key limes, 200 pounds of graham crackers and 55 gallons of sweetened condensed milk.

It had a diameter of 97 inches and weighed about 1,000 pounds.

Key lime pie is believed to have originated in Key West in the late 1800s and was designated the state’s official pie in 2006.

Florida Keys Days is designed to remind state legislators about their constituents in the state’s southernmost island chain. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
