A pumpkin is really a squash, and is actually considered to be a fruit.
Before the discovery of corn in the early American colonies, pumpkins were the staple food found in all households.
Pumpkins are relatively easy to grow and are actually raised in 6 of the 7 continents. Take a guess which one you can’t fine any on… Antarctica.
You can actually eat the flowers of pumpkin plants.
