Frankenstein Pumpkins On Sale in Vancouver for $79.13

The same place that offered $200 square watermelons in the summer is at it again, this time with a pumpkin twist.

Gourmet grocer Urban Fare is offering its customers in Vancouver and Kelowna with a chance to own Pumpkins grown in molds to look like Frankenstein. How much for one of these bad boys? $79.13 each.

The pumpkins, which are referred to as ‘Pumpkinsteins’, are organically grown in California by farmer Tony Dighera who experimented with 27 varieties of pumpkins before finally perfecting his creation just in time for Halloween.

Pumpkinsteins make the ideal one step, mess-free Jack O’lanterns. When Pumpkinsteins are hollowed out, the eyes will glow if a lit candle is placed inside.

Urban Fare is the only place in Canada where you can buy a Pumpkinstein. The retailer is selling them for $79.13 each. The Pumpkinstein has made international headlines in the recent days after being sold at a few US grocery stores for $125. “We worked with the famer to get a good price on these Pumpkinsteins so that Urban Fare customers could own one before anyone else.” says Urban Fare Director, Allan Aikman. “This is a great chance to own a piece of food history.”

Urban Fare has 4 locations in the 604: Yaletown, Coal Harbour, Shangri-La, and False Creek.
