Frequently Asked Questions

What Parts of the Pumpkin is Edible?

Every part of the pumpkin is edible except for the stem. The flesh can be used for pies, cakes, and bread, the seeds for snacks, the stringy “guts” can be used for broth, and the skin can also be eaten.

Is Pumpkin a Squash?

Pumpkin is a member of the gourd family along with watermelon, muskmelon, and squash. It is a fruit that’s native to North America.

What Kind of Pumpkin is Best for Cooking?

Pumpkins sold for carving are not the best for cooking as they have less flesh than other varieties. Look for a pumpkin that’s heavy for its size, meaning it has more flesh available for cooking. It should also be unblemished. Smaller pumpkins are more tender than big ones.

How Do You Store a Fresh Pumpkin?

They keep well at room temperature for up to a month and can be refrigerated for up to 3 months.

What Does Pumpkin Taste Like?

The flesh is sweet and mild. The seeds are nutty when roasted.
