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.
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.
Now it 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.
