Frankenstein pumpkins!

They’re called “pumpkinsteins,” and they look a lot like the Frankenstein creature that actor Boris Karloff made famous more than 80 years ago.

Tony Dighera, who opened his Cinagro Farms eight years ago, says he was inspired after seeing cube-shaped watermelons grown in Japan. He was successful in creating not only edible, box-shaped watermelons at his Fillmore, California, organic farm, but heart-shaped melons as well. He then made the leap to try to create a unique-looking pumpkin — a four-year process that is only proving fruitful this year.
