1,676 pound pumpkin arrives in Berryville, VA

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT)-Even Charlie Brown would be impressed with the great pumpkin that arrived in Berryville, VA Monday.

All 1,676 pounds of it arrived at its new Virginia home from Northern Pennsylvania. Its new owner grows gourds of all sizes, and buys a giant pumpkin each year to wow customers.

This pumpkin is bigger than the world record holder, but not as heavy.

The super sizing ingredient for this whopper of a gourd: cow manure.
