Caption Only: Bountiful crop - the papa of all pumpkins grown in Utah

At least Bruce Orchard won't have to worry about anyone stealing his pumpkin this year. Not unless the thief can heave more than 600 pounds. Orchard, Bountiful, grew a 620.5 pound pumpkin. During a contest at the Wasatch Shadows Nursery Saturday, the big orange fruit officially became the largest pumpkin ever grown in Utah. Orchard's pumpkin squashed the previous record of 520 pounds set by Ken Giles in 1994.
