Pumpkins are believed to have originated in Central America, although archeological evidence has proved that the oldest domesticated pumpkin seeds originate in the Oaxaca Highlands of Mexico.

Their seeds are edible, commonly served as a roasted snack.

Pumpkins are mainly served as a vegetable and used interchangeably with other winter squashes in Europe and South America. However, in the United States and Canada, pumpkin is mainly used as a dessert that is traditionally served on Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Pumpkins grow best in warm and sunny environments, sheltered from cold winds and moisture-retentive soil. Their soil should range between the temperatures of 65° and 95° F (18° to 35°C).
