Comments: Flooded farm fields with the last pumpkins - early morning - Saanich Peninsula, Vancouver island, BC. 02 December. A pumpkin is a cultivar of winter squash that is round with smooth, slightly ribbed skin, and is most often deep yellow to orange in coloration. The thick shell contains the seeds and pulp. The name is most commonly used for cultivars of Cucurbita pepo. Native to North America pumpkins are one of the oldest domesticated plants, having been used as early as 7,500 to 5,000 BC. Pumpkins are widely grown for commercial use and as food, aesthetics, and recreational purposes. China and India combined account for half of the world's production of pumpkins. Giant pumpkins are large squash with a pumpkin-like appearance that grow to exceptional size, with the largest exceeding 1 ton in weight. Most are varieties of Cucurbita maxima, and were developed through the efforts of botanical societies and enthusiast farmers.
