Sharon Police Department

A giant vegetable grower in Massachusetts has nearly set a world record for his gigantic gourd. 

Steve Connelly, of Sharon, won first place at a weigh-off in Rhode Island on Sunday for his 320-pound gourd. That gourd is now considered to be the third largest in the world. 

Connelly has previously broken records and won awards across the region for growing enormous pumpkins and squash.
