National Pumpkin Day is observed annually on October 26. People across the nation enjoy cake, pie, cookies, bars, pudding, coffee, smoothies, candy, breads. muffins, soups, cheesecake, oatmeal, lasagna and more, all made with delicious pumpkin.

The oldest evidence of pumpkin-related seeds dates back to somewhere between 7000 and 5500 BC and were found in Mexico.

The word pumpkin originates from the word pepon, which is Greek for “large melon”.

Within recent years, white pumpkins have become more popular in the United States.

1.5 billion pounds of pumpkins are produced in the United States each year.

In September 2012 Ron Wallace’s  2,009 pound Atlantic Giant pumpkin in Rhode Island set the current world record.

Canned pumpkin may be recommended by veterinarians as a dietary supplement for dogs and cats that are experiencing certain digestive ailments.

Raw pumpkin can be fed to poultry as a supplement to their regular feed during the winter months to help maintain egg production.
