STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep with pumpkin news. A certain six-year-old picked a Halloween pumpkin yesterday that weighed 19 pounds - a speck compared to the pumpkin that set a Minnesota State record. It weighed 1,630 pounds and didn't even win a contest. An out-of-state pumpkin was 27 pounds heavier. In Rhode Island, a man won a contest with a pumpkin four pounds heavier than that - 1,661. Still short of the world record. You are listening to MORNING EDITION.
