Leonardo Urena spent the summer tending to the massive gourd, on a 1200 square-foot- plot of land.

It also earned him the title, “Grand Champion Grower 2019” and $15,225. It amounts to about $7 a pound.

“You feel satisfied accomplishing this and it gives you the desire to continue with the support from family and friends,” Urena said.
