Growing giant produce pays off.

Star-News reports that 10-year-old Turner Caglarcan of Wilmington, North Carolina, grew a cabbage that weighed almost six pounds in his backyard garden. This feat made him the North Carolina winner of the National Bonnie Plants Cabbage Program. Turner earned a $1,000 savings bond to be used for education.

Each year, the program gives a scholarship to one student in each state that participates. The North Carolina Department of Agriculture randomly selects the state’s winner.
