These molds turn pumpkins into Frankenstein’s monster face
While it’s not quite Halloween, there’s never a bad time to include even more Frankenstein (and yes, we know Frankenstein was the scientist, not the monster, roll with that) in your life. And not just as a multi-part franchise of Guillermo del Toro. You can have Frankenstein on your pumpkins in a much cooler way than a simple carving. In this case the Frankenstein monster is pumpkin. Jim Seamons of Cache Valley Giant Pumpkins in Benson, Utah shows us a great way to get more “monster” in your day-to-day life and get yourself in the sun. And we all know how important vitamin D is.
Boing boing picked up on Seamons’ Frankenstein pumpkin videos (above and below), which the “King of the Giant Pumpkins” recently posted on TikTok. Seamons, a farmer from Benson, has seen his Franken-pumpkin videos go massively viral. The above clip of him showing how he makes his monstrous winter squash, for example, has already garnered over 24 million views.
To make Frankenstein’s festive heads, Seamons notes that he uses plastic molds from FruitMould.com. As Seamons shows, the mussels that gaze at the monster’s face shape any vegetable that grows inside. In this case, when the Seamons pumpkins bloom, the molds squeeze them into the shape of the monster’s face. Then all the farmer has to do is unscrew the nuts and bolts that hold the plastic molds in place and tada: Franken-pumpkin.
For those who wish to explore other ways of molding pumpkins, we recommend that you check out Fruitmould.com. And it’s not a paid ad or anything. We just want to see more shaped vegetables in our lives. Square watermelons, skull-shaped pumpkins, fruits that look like soccer balls… Any unusual shapes, please. After all, we need something to make them more appetizing and exciting.
