Local farmers in Minnesota are growing pink pumpkins for a good cause: breast cancer awareness.
You can see, these pumpkins are not the typical bright orange.
If you look closely, you can see a pink tint on them.
Farmer Bert Bouwman says the concept started by accident several years ago when a farmer spotted the color.
They're being sold at some Twin Cities grocery stores, and buyers are snatching them up!
"It just started and already we're over by 400 dollars," Bouwman says. "So by the end of the season we hope to have a good large amount."
A certain percentage from the pumpkin sales will go directly to fund breast cancer research.
