Farmer Grows Pumpkins with Human Faces (Jan, 1938)
I’m not sure what’s scarier. The pumpkin head or that woman’s eyebrows.
Farmer Grows Pumpkins with Human Faces
Pumpkins with human faces have been produced by John M. Czeski, Ohio farmer, after four years of experimenting. To grow the novel fruit, Czeski fashions an aluminum mold of the head he wants to reproduce, and places it around a growing pumpkin approximately the size of a small grapefruit. After the pumpkin has expanded enough to fill the inside contours, the mold is removed. The print of the features remains as the pumpkin continues to grow, and the final result is a lifelike full-size image in the ripened fruit.
