Check Out This Gigantic Pumpkin Growing Here in Illinois

The Pumpkin King doesn't live in Halloweentown... He lives right here in Illinois!

The biggest pumpkin in the state this year was grown by Joe Adkins. Weighing in at 1510 pounds, this pumpkin wasn't grown on a farm. It was grown in Joe's backyard! He told CBS 2 that the seeds for these massive pumpkins cost about $400-$500 a piece!

Joe also had his soil tested, and he collects rainwater to help the pumpkins reach their max potential. 

Hundreds of trick-or-treaters will come to his house on Halloween, and he hands out candy along with pumpkin seeds!
