Pumpkins come in hundreds of varieties, differing in size, colour, taste and texture. A cousin to every other winter squash out there, pumpkins have a similar earthy sweet flavor.
Pumpkin has fantastic health benefits, such as beta-carotene. Also, great to be used in any cooking recipes.
The skin of a pumpkin will be hard when the pumpkin is ripe. Use a fingernail and gently try to puncture the pumpkin’s skin. If the skin dents but doesn’t puncture, the pumpkin is ready to pick.
