Pumpkins are a type of squash that is typically associated with the fall harvest. There are many different varieties of pumpkins, which can range in color from deep orange to almost white.
The taste of pumpkin is fairly mild, making it a versatile ingredient for both sweet and savory dishes. Pumpkin seeds are often roasted and eaten as a snack, and they also make a great topping for salads or soup.
In addition to being eaten, pumpkins are also commonly used for decoration, particularly around Halloween. Whether you're carving a jack-o-lantern or simply enjoying a slice of pumpkin pie, pumpkins are sure to add some autumnal flavor to your day.
