A type of winter squash that develops an orange outer skin with a golden inner flesh. The sizes of Pumpkins can range from very small to very large weighing close to 1000 lbs when exceptionally large. The larger Pumpkins are generally grown only for size competitions and are not used as a food. The sweet flesh of the Pumpkin is used in baking, often for pies but it is also used in puddings, soups, savory dishes, and stuffings.
