New London man seeks world status as giant pumpkin grower
NEW LONDON -- Chad Revier has already broken the Minnesota state record he set last year for growing the largest pumpkin.
Now he's seeking the status of "Grower of the Year" for the world.
A 1,579-pound pumpkin the New London man grew this year outweighs the giant pumpkin he grew last year by about 150 pounds. It currently ranks as the fifth-largest pumpkin grown in the world this year and ranks eighth-largest pumpkin ever grown in the world.
