A pumpkin is a squash fruit, usually orange in colour when ripe. Pumpkins grow as a gourd from a trailing vine of the genus Cucurbita Cucurbitaceae. Cultivated in North America, continental Europe, India and some other countries, as well as in English cottage gardens, Cucurbita varieties include Cur…curbita pepo, Cucurbita maxima, Cucurbita mixta, or Cucurbita moschata all plants native to the Western hemisphere. The pumpkin varies greatly in form, being sometimes nearly globular, but more generally oblong or ovoid in shape. The rind is smooth and variable in colour. The larger kinds acquire a weight of 40 to 80 lb (18 to 36 kg) but smaller varieties are in vogue for garden culture. Pumpkins are a popular food, with their insides commonly eaten cooked and served in dishes such as pumpkin pie; the seeds can be roasted as a snack. Pumpkins are traditionally used to carve Jack-o'-lanterns for use as part of Halloween celebrations. Botanically it is a fruit, referring to a certain plant part which grows from a flower. However it is widely regarded as a vegetable in culinary terms, referring to how it is eaten. (MORE)
From a pumpkin seed. It's planted in the ground and then grows into a vine. The pumpkins grow as a fruit on the pumpkin vine in the "pumpkin patch." They sit on the ground and can become very large and heavy.
Answer . Different recipes. If you're talking about canned pumpkin for making pumpkin pie, you can use either pure pumpkin or a mix. Libby's, for example, has both. If you choose seasoned pumpkin mix, you don't add seasoning. Follow the recipe on the label. You do have to add some things. P…robably what you mean by "regular pumpkin mix" is not a mix at all but 100% pure pumpkin. You do the mixing by adding the seasoning, the evaporated milk (not "sweetened condensed"!), and so on. If you're choosing canned pumpkin for pies, pay attention to which one you're buying because the quantities are different. For either choice, the label has the recipe and the list of ingredients. Use that as your shopping list, and follow the instructions carefully, and you'll be fine. No matter which way you do it, a little dash of fresh-grated nutmeg on top just before it goes into the oven is going to make a nice extra. (MORE)
I assume you are peeling it with the intention of eating it. The easiest way to peel it is to cut it in half, scrape out the seeds, and bake it for an hour or so until soft. It will be hot, but the orange rind will slip off quite easily.\n. \nIf you want to peel a raw pumpkin, you can try using a… potato peeler...good luck. (MORE)

A berry is defined a fruit with a ripened ovary. Technically a pumpkin is a berry just like a watermelon. It is a fruit becau…se a pumpkin is a fleshy plant that has seeds in it and comes from a flower. Most people group sweet edible produce as fruits and less-sweet produce as vegetables.

No a pumpkin is a fruit but it is usually used as a vegetable (e.g. in soups, roasts etc) It is generally savory except when used in pumpkin scones or pumpkin pie
first you make a hole in the top and take all the yucky stuff out then u clean it the u cut a face out then u put a candle in it and put the top back on then u put it on your front door step for Halloween.
Easy as pie! Split the pumpkin in half, scrape the seeds, optionally spread olive oil on the inside and cut surfaces, bake at 350 for an hour or two until soft. Peel the skin off and throw it away. You now need to process the pulp via a food mill, a stick or immersion blender, or a food processor… until the stringy bits are gone. You now have pumpkin puree, ready for use. (MORE)
Pumpkins are used in Halloween because when the Irish came to the colonies they didn't find the turnips they used in Ireland for "Jack'O Lantern's" so they began to use pumpkins. The carved turnips are used as lanterns because of the story that Jack of the Lanteran was condemned by the Devil to walk… the earth. (MORE)
Pumpkins are native to America. The early English used the term 'pumpion', later 'pumpkin' to refer to what we know as winter squash. farm lands and if that's not it i do not know

Pumpkins originated in North America. The first to cultivate andharness the pumpkin for human use was probably the NativeAmericans. They were thought to have originated in North America. The oldest evidence dates from 7000 BC from pumpkin related seeds in Mexico
They are found in a pumpkin patch. They are native to the Americas, the most familiar species being in North America.
pumpkin is the 1234321 of science. The first awsome guy to find it out was awesome josh
Yes, but it also included the carving of other root vegetables like turnips, parsnips, and potatoes before carved pumpkins came about.
I don't think you can. I spoke to a pumpkin farmer in April about buying a couple of pumpkins, and he said it was impossible as the harvest isn't until September. However you might get them early. Early is in July if you are lucky. The only pumpkin you can get all year round is canned pumpkin.
Yes, It is where Pumpkins grow on a vine on the ground. This is called a Patch,by many people.
Pumpkins are a North American squash. When the tradition of carving turnips was brought to the Americas pumpkins were substituted because they were plentiful.
I don't think it really matters. On their earlier albums, they were called Smashing Pumpkins, and then it was The Smashing Pumpkins, and now, with the release of their album Zeitgeist , it seems they have gone back to just Smashing Pumpkins. I have all of their albums. The only ones I can't find… are Machina I (but I do have a single from it) and their B-side compilation album, Pisces Iscariot . If and when I manage to find those albums, I'll update the answer. Anyway, on their first albums, Siamese Dream and Gish , it's just Smashing Pumpkins. But starting with the release of their third album, Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness , it's The Smashing Pumpkins. These are the CDs I have where they are called Smashing Pumpkins: Gish (1991) Lull EP (1991) Siamese Dream (1993) Disarm single (1993) And these are the CDs I have where they are called The Smashing Pumpkins: Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness (1995) Lost Highway Soundtrack, "Eye" (1996) The Aeroplane Flies High Boxed Set discs (1997) A Very Special Christmas 3, "Christmastime Has Come" (1997) Batman & Robin soundtrack "The End Is the Beginning Is the End" (1998) Adore (1998) Ava Adore single (1998) Stand Inside Your Love single (2000) But the album Zeitgeist (2007), the first album they've made since they broke up and reformed with different members, lists them as Smashing Pumpkins.

Traditionally pumpkins were meant to keep evil spirits away but now they are mainly used to look pretty. =D And let's not forget pumpkin pie. Pumpkin seeds are also edible if baked.
because when the Greeks came to this country they dougtth that this was the name of the poking .
The meat. The pulp and seeds are removed, and the meat is cooked until it can be removed from the rind. Then it is pureed, and can be used in many things, mostly notably pie.
How old your pumpkin is might be the problem. A pumpkin produces food after 1-2 years; the leaves taste good boiled for the meantime though!
Pumpkins are available in stores during the Halloween time. Either that or you can get them on a farm.
When the vine is ready it makes the pumpkins and thats when the pumpkins are on the vines.
Carve it for halloween, make pumpkin pies, pumpkin soup with it, enter a competition for the biggest pumpkin at a country show, grow them.
atleast a week before Halloween starts that's when you cave it, decorate it, and make it nice and fancy =D!...... no i disagree if you carve a pumpkin a week before Halloween starts it willstart to smell and rot away. I think you should carve a pumpkin a day or two early.
they actually have a lot to do with it . first of all they have to do with Halloween which originated from hundreds of years ago and squash and pumpkins were used to do with spells :) hope i helped
You can buy some cheap pumpkin carving tools in Tesco if you live in England. Or just use a spoon. My personal favroite HANDS!
I just got a small pumpkin and it was sitting in my house. A few days later I was sitting near it and the thing just exploded all over the place! I have no idea WHY or HOW this occurred, but I assure you the pumpkins can in fact EXPLODE! Can anyone tell me WHY this may have happened?
Pumpkins require no special attention to bring them home from the grocery store or farmer's market. Simply lay the pumpkin in the floorboard of your car, you can also place it in a bag, or lay it in your trunk. Once you get the pumpkin home, store it in a cool area, and don't store it for very long.… It should be used within a week, depending on the age of the pumpkin when you buy it. (MORE)
Pumpkin pie filling can be made with canned pumpkin pie filling; or it can be made from pumpkin puree, made from real pumpkins. When made from real pumpkin puree, it is mixed with milk, sugar, and spices to make a very tasty filling. Some people use allspice, nutmeg and/or cinnamon as the spices.
A can of pumpkin is pumpkin puree, it's just that someone else has already pureed it for you.
Pumpkin is a shade of orange that is commonly associated with pumpkins, it is also the name of an Anything Muppet pattern (the tall kind with the oval head)
The mask you need is on a scarecrow after you complete Snoopy's Flying Ace adventure. There is no mask in the pumpkin patch. You can create a costumizer version (which does not help on the quest) by pressing the three keys Ctrl+Shift+P, and the same to take it off.
Every type of fruit has a stem. It all grows on plants. The plant provides the fruit with food so the fruit can grow. A pumpkin is a fruit just like an apple or an orange.
Yes, Pumpkins do have feelings -.- The ones in Narnia with the Unicorns and man eating Pie
Not a lot really, You can turn it into a Jack-O-Lantern if you have a torch which you can wear as a helmet or place as an underwater torch.
I'm almost sure its kinda like an umbilical cord.... They get food through the stem. The stem is it's root.
Cut a hole around the stem and take it out. Scoop out all seeds and gush from inside, scraping the sides well. Draw out a stencil of what you want to cut on a paper, then tape it to the pumpkin. Use a sharp knife and cut from the stencil in clean strokes.
they are healthy because they are fruits. not veggies but fruits. if you don't know that then you are a dumb nut case.
because they are delicious and easy to grow. They were one of several staple crops grown by native Americans prior to invasion by European settlers, and they make much better jack o lanterns than turnips.
They are pumpkin carvers in stores or you can also look them up online. I suggest you get the non-plastic ones (they break easily when carving). Always be careful when using knives to cut into hard skin of the pumpkin.
You can make a Jack O Latern by putting a torch in a pumpkin, inthe 1.4.2. update you can make pumpkin pie with sugar and eggs. Youcan also farm pumpkins by put pumpkins in your crafting slot and itcomes out with seeds then you make a farmland and then you canharvest them. If you have a 2 or 3 snow …blocks, and one pumpkin you can make asnowman (MORE)
When you talk to Linus and Lucy, Lucy wants the "heaviest" pumpkin,so you will weigh the 7 of them to find which is heaviest. Then shewill ask Linus to get one back to the house, which you do byrolling it (carefully) to the left, avoiding hazards.
Grocery store. Or, if it's Autumn and the Fall Festival is in town, then go to the festival and there's a pumpkin picking patch there.
Not by animals. The rine is too thick for most animals to chew through. mainly by humans. Good question. You must be smart. I'm really happy for you and your smartness. :)
