Pumpkins Grown In Frankenstein's Monster Face Molds

October 16, 2014


Tony Dighera of Cinagro Farms in Ventura County, California, has spent the last four years developing the perfect mold to grow these Frankenstein's monster faced pumpkins in. This year was his first successful commercial harvest, producing 5,500 molded pumpkins, which he sold to suppliers for $75 apiece. That's over $400,000 in profit. Next year he plans to devote his entire farm to the pumpkins (including some skull-shaped white pumpkins) and produce between 30,000 - 40,000. Damn, Tony is going to be rolling in the dough! So much dough you'd swear he owned a bread farm. "Um, GW? You do know bread doesn't grown on trees, right?" Fine, bushes, WHATEVER.

Keep going for a bunch more shots.







Thanks to lilco, who agrees these make the perfect pumpkins for the person in your life that's already missing fingers from last year's jack-o-lantern carving party.

    That farm must look creepy at night.

    Great job! They look really cool!

    I rescued a pumpkin from a pumpkin farm.

    I named this pumpkin "Snow". I could see that she was scared every single moment waiting to be picked, purchased and eviscerated on somebody's kitchen table.

    I can see you smiling, I can see you laughing, but to Snow the pumpkin, this is not funny!

    They deserve their lives, and right now their seeds, their flesh are in pie mix in supermarkets and canned food collection boxes, and in participating Dunkin' Donuts Pumpkin Coolattas all over the country (for a limited time only)!

    These pumpkins aren't FUN! It's violence!

  • Mr. K

    Over $400k in revenue, not necessarily profit. I'm sure he has some expenses. Yes, I hate myself for even typing this message...

  • captaindash

    I started to type the same message. Don't feel bad, it's just that we hold GW to the highest of standards. Could it be he's fallible?

  • Fred

    Just imagine how terrifying it would be to open that mold and find the pumpkin had become infested with maggots...

  • MeggyMonster

    Would those maggots also have tiny Frankenstein's monster faces?... o 3o

  • MustacheHam

    This is pretty cool, very smooth texture for Franky.
    BTW these guys do their party by also scaring away crows/pests. XD

  • The_Wretched

    Do you think I could scare away wandering cows with them?

    Also, I want other body parts next year, not just heads.
