A farmer in Arizona who boasted the “greenest” pumpkins in the state, for his organic growing methods is now also able to claim his pumpkins are the pinkest, too.

That's right. Norm Freeman of Freeman Farms in Chino Valley, Arizona says thanks to cross pollination between two varies of pumpkins, white Cinderella pumpkin and a red Cinderella pumpkin, he now sells pumpkins that are pink.

Freeman says the a portion of the pink pumpkin sales will be donated to the Breast Cancer Society in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month in October.

"This year we've grown about a quarter mile of the pink pumpkins and we're really looking forward to trying to increase awareness for breast cancer research," said Freeman.
