Did you know that pumpkins are actually part of the same family that squash comes from? And did you know that pumpkins have some of the lowest caloric counts in all vegetables? These are valuable pieces of information for your end consumer to know, especially for those with particular dietary needs. The added benefit is that pumpkin is high in dietary fiber, anti-oxidants, minerals and vitamins.
This makes it a valuable food for those who are trying to lose weight or for those who have special diets like vegans. This particular variety of plant has much in the way of variety too. There are the common orange pumpkins that you see in the market and that you can grow yourself, and then there are other pumpkins which are designed to be smaller and colored green. They possess similar nutritional contents, so aesthetics and flavor are differentiating factors.
