How great is a pumpkin?

I need to order a container today that has to be big enough to hold 95% of jack-o-lantern type pumpkins. I'm in an office and I have no access to actual pumpkins to verify their typical size. Help?

The container I'm looking at is an open cube that is 14.5" wide, high and long.
The height of the pumpkin is not a concern, if it exceeds 14.5" that's OK, it will pop out the top.
I just need to know whether some significant number of pumpkins will be too wide to fit in that cube. Again, 95% (fake precision, I really mean "just about all") need to fit.
Any pumpkin experts here? Is there something like an ISO spec for pumpkins meant for carving?
