He Spent 4 Years Making This For Halloween. How It Turned Out Is Just… WOW!
There’s special pumpkin treats awaiting some lucky Halloween shoppers this year. A farmer named Tony Dighera figured out how to grow pumpkins into the shape of Frankenstein’s head!
Dighera’s special pumpkins grow into a plastic Frankenstein mold and when they mature the mold is taken off. It took him 4 years and 27 different types of pumpkins before he discovered the winning formula. Next year they’re projected to sell at $100 per head.
The trial and error process cost just shy of $500,000. His first successful harvest produced 5,500 frankensteins which sold for $75 per head. That’s $412,500 in sales!
“I started playing around and realized pretty quickly this wasn’t going to be a quick thing. But I also realized that if I could really figure it out, I would have something special. When you try something for four years of your life, people really start to think you’re wacko,” he told the New York Times.
Dighera has already started preparing his entire 40-acre land for next year’s harvest.
