The Pumpkin

The shell-less pumpkin seed

The pumpkin plant is one of the oldest cultivated plants in the world. The earliest gourd finds of the common gourd, Cucurbita pepo, have been dated by scientists to be between 10,700 and 9,200 BC. They come from southern Mexico. The pumpkin probably only came to Europe after the discovery of America. These were so-called shelled pumpkin seeds, which are still cultivated in many regions of the world today.

The gourd family is exceptionally closely related, one genus of which is Cucurbita pepo var. Styrica, the so-called shell-less Styrian pumpkin seed.
