I propose a colorful autumn recipe ......
Pumpkin or pumpkin or cucurbita (Cucurbita maxima) is an annual herbaceous plant cultivated for its fruit, flowers and seeds.
It is native to South America, where it grows wild in the Southern Cone.
It was introduced at an early age in Europe (late sixteenth century), the ease of its hybridization made it confused with the pumpkins of pilgrims (Lagenaria siceraria).
Today it is grown on large areas in temperate regions around the world.
In some countries the flower is eaten as a vegetable; the fruit can be stored in suitable conditions of light, temperature and humidity for up to 6 months in good condition.
It is rich in β-carotene and glucose. The seeds are known as pumpkin seeds and are attributed medicinal properties in natural medicine.
