    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Ofir Auslander met with Israeli farmer Rami Sadeh to find out how he manages to grow giant gourds that weigh 40 kilos (88 pounds). Sadeh, who is also an agronomist, attributes the large size to his development process. “He cultivates varieties for several cycles of growth and continues to try to grow larger ones. His goal to be the only one who grows giant pumpkins,” said Auslander, who works in public relations for farmers and also for the Israeli Ministry of Agriculture. (Some people use the term pumpkins for all types of squash.) These photos show Sadeh and his family on their farm in Moshav Ein Yahav, Israel, this March.
