A Farmer Has Found a Way to Grow Pumpkins That Look Just Like Frankenstein’s Monster
Instead of carving a pumpkin like a sucker this year, just let creepy agricultural engineering take care of things for you.
Tony Dighera is a farmer in Fillmore, California, and he figured out a way to grow pumpkins in a mold that makes them look just like Frankenstein's monster. They're tall, narrow, and have the monster face molded right into them.
It took him four years and $500,000 to get these pumpkins right. They're sold out on his website right now but grocery stores around the world are importing them, if your grocery store has them, expect to pay at least $100 each.
Tony is working on a new mold now for pumpkins that look like a Jolly Roger-type pirate, those will be on sale next Halloween.
