Tony Dighera is a farmer in Ventura County, California, and he loves Halloween. After years of trying and investing almost half a million dollars, Dighera found the perfect way to merge his passion for Halloween and farming.
I present to you the “Pumpkinstein.” It’s a pumpkin shaped like a classic Frankenstein head, though it’s modified a bit to prevent any lawsuits.
Aside from the shape, Pumpkinsteins are normal pumpkins. They’re just grown in a special mold.
Dighera says he spent years of trial and error, as well as a hefty amount of money, perfecting his method of Pumpkinstein creation.
Here is the 53-year-old Dighera with one of his proud creations.
Nowit looks like Dighera is set to make a nice profit on his crop of 5,500 Pumpkinsteins this year. The wholesale rate for each Pumpkinstein is around $75-a-head, and they retail for about $100.
Of course pumpkins aren’t the only thing that Dighera’s farm grows. They also grows differently shaped watermelons.

This is so cool! For $100 a pumpkin, this almost seems worth it if you’re a Frankenstein fan. Though my favorite classic monster is the Wolfman. Maybe we can put in a request for Wolfman pumpkins next year?
