Did you know that pumpkins have been around a very long time?
The pumpkin was first grown thousands of years ago in Mexico. That doesn’t mean they make pumpkin spice coffee and cake, though! The sweet pumpkin muffins and cake we love aren’t very old at all. They only show up in recipe books starting in the 1940s.
A pumpkin is a cultivar of winter squash that is round with smooth, slightly ribbed skin and is most often deep yellow to orange in coloration. The thick shell contains the seeds and pulp. Native to North America pumpkins are one of the oldest domesticated plants. Pumpkins are widely grown for commercial use and for food, aesthetics, and recreational purposes.

Social media also gest some pumpkin vibes during this season. They feed fill up with photos and videos of kids in pumpkin patches and running through corn mazes.
Today it is not enough to have a pumpkin plantation. Pumpkins have become a kind of tourist attraction.
