Growers and grocers with albino pumpkins are making a killing.
Parents and Halloween party planners say the pale pumpkins are more versatile than their traditional orange cousins. They also cost a bit more.
The albinos are called Ghost pumpkins, Snowballs, Luminas or Caspers, presumably a reference to the friendly ghost. Those who carve the pumpkins will find they still have orange flesh beneath the white rind, adding to their ghostly appeal when a candle is put inside.
One grower in Illinois says he decided to grow six times as many albinos because they've proven so popular.
