The Weirdest, Odd-est, Strangest Pumpkin I've Ever Seen On My Travels....Somebody Give Me a Clue As To What This Please Is

If anyone out there in the blogosphere of garden land can identify the woody weave like material on this pumpkin please leave a comment here or on facebook.  I bought this pumpkin at a local mom and pop farm because of it's un-usualness.  There were two other pumpkins at the farm with this covering, but this one was, by far, covered the most.  The pithy woody substance breaks off easily when you try to peel it off the pumpkin.  Any identification/ understanding of what this stuff is would be greatly appreciated.

  1. Looks very strange! Reminds me of the aliens in 'Mars Attack'!

    Could it be a developmental abnormality of the pericarp?
