It will help decorate the grounds of the zoo during the annual Boo at the Zoo event.

"I give this one an 'A,' for color and size," he told us. "I estimate it weighs around 350 pounds. I've grown one that was 615, but I like this one."

He gets the seeds from a farmer down near the cities. He adds water, lots of cow manure, and protects the vines from hail. 

Boo at the Zoo is both this Saturday and next!
