Do you know… that a pumpkin is a fruit?

It's no vegetable! Pumpkins belong to the family Cucurbitacae, which includes cucumbers, melons, squash, and gourds. Pumpkins are high in fiber and Vitamin A, and also contain generous amounts of Vitamins B and C and beta-carotene. Varieties grown in North Carolina include Mammoth Gold, Autumn Gold, Happy Jack, Big Max, and Sugar Pie.
