Red & Round
These "Red Warty Things" are specialty pumpkins whose bright amber shells are completely covered in tiny bumps.
Even with its ghostly skin, the "Flat White Boer" looks more cute than scary.
These strange-looking pumpkins, called "Kamo-Kamo," are relatively small in size. Their unique shells have puffed-out, vertical rinds against a darker background. They come in olive green, light orange and buttery yellow colors.
Ghoulish Goose Bumps
A smaller variety of "Super Freaks," the "Goose Bumps" pumpkins are slightly harder to cut. When it comes to carving them up, the pumpkins' manufactures recommend trying to "pierce the skin of your pumpkin on the top of a wart, versus on a smooth part of the surface. The warts seem to be much softer under the hard shell."
These extra large pumpkins — which vary from 60 to 80 pounds in size — come in colors including white, blue, peach and the classic orange hue.
The sinisterly named "Sand Man" pumpkin is covered with a skin that looks and feels like butternut squash. Its unusual, flesh-tone color makes for an even eerier jack-o'-lantern.
These pumpkins are called "Sweet Lightning" because of their caramel-colored ribbed pattern, which is intercepted with wide, buttery-yellow streaks.
These "Super Freaks" gourds are called "Gremlins" and come in a multitude of shapes, textures and colors. Their shapes include stars, acorns, mushrooms and even ones with long, swan-like necks.
Bunch of Bumpy Pumpkins
"Goose Bumps" pumpkins vary in appearance, from slightly warty to warty all over, and from a uniform orange or swamp-green color to green warts on orange skin. Their freaky surface would be perfect for carving a witch face on.
This uniquely hued pumpkin has a russet brown shell and is orange on the inside. It's named "Fairy Tale" for its Cinderella's coach-like shape.
