A pumpkin is a cultivar of the squash plant, most commonly of Cucurbita pepo, that is round, with smooth, slightly ribbed skin, and deep yellow to orange coloration
The thick shell contains the seeds and pulp
The color of pumpkins is derived from the orange pigments abundant in them
The main nutrients are lutein and both alpha and beta carotene, the latter of which generates vitamin A in the body
The word pumpkin originates from the word pepon, which is Greek for “large melon", something round and large
The French adapted this word to pompon, which the British changed to pumpion and later American colonists changed that to the word that is used today, "pumpkin"
Pumpkins, like other squash, are native to North America
Pumpkins are widely grown for commercial use, and are used both in food and recreation
A Gourd is any of the hard-shelled ornamental fruits of certain members of the gourd family, Cucurbitaceae
Many gourds are cultivated as ornamentals or food crops, and some can be dried and used to make utensils, cups, bottles, scoops, ladles, fishnet floats, whistles, rattles, pipes, birdhouses, and other useful objects!
