This is such a cool pumpkin. Warty Goblin is a hybrid that is heavily warted. The warts keep their immature green color long after the pumpkin has turned orange. This particular specimen is more ripe and the warts have also turned orange. Warty Goblin is however difficult to carve. The skin is quite hard and the warts make it difficult to slice through. This was Zach's carving pumpkin this year. He got the job done, but it was cumbersome.
