LITTLETON, Colo. - Halloween has passed. What do you do with your pumpkins? Some make a pie. Others, drop them from a 150-foot tall crane.
KDVR in Denver reports that Gary Grandy in Littleton, Colorado grows giant pumpkins. He claims his largest pumpkin was 1,386 lbs.
"It's a challenge, it's a sport, every year try to grow it bigger than the year before," Grandy said.
Grandy is the President and CEO of the Rocky Mountain Giant Vegetable Growers.
"We're a bunch of crazy growers, we love to grow things big," Grandy said.
Growers who want giant pumpkins will pay him up to $1600 per seed!
