Here  is a little pumpkin trivia:

Pumpkins have been grown in America for over 5,000 years.

Six of the seven continents grow pumpkins. Antarctica is the only continent where they won’t grow. They are even grown in Alaska.

Colonists made pumpkin pies by filling a hollowed out pumpkin shell with milk, honey and spices and then roasting them over hot ashes. Did they learn this from the Indians?

Many consider the  pumpkin a vegetable but it really is a fruit. As a type of squash, it is member of the gourd family and is related to cucumbers, gherkins, and melons.
