USA Pumpkins

September - October

The US pumpkin market is limited and seasonal as pumpkins are grown for processing and used fresh for ornamental use. Pumpkins are very versatile in their uses for cooking; most parts of the pumpkin are edible, including the fleshy shell, the seeds, the leaves, and even the flowers.

In North America, pumpkin is a popular Halloween and Thanksgiving staple.
