Move Over, Jack-O-Lantern! We Want Warty Pumpkins!

Goodbye perfectly round orange pumpkin. Hello warty, pimply, carbuncle covered goards! Instagrammers are proudly posting their ugly finds and you can check them out by searching #wartypumpkins.

A farmer’s market owner says “Everyone wants the weird stuff.” Apparently 30 years ago, farmers would occasionally see a few warty pumpkins, usually related to a plant virus, but no one ever wanted them. Now? Very trendy. And judging by their social media popularity? Get ’em now! They might be hard to find later! – KW
