Pumpkin. A gourd is a gourd-like gourd of the genus Cucurbita and the cucurbite family (which also includes gourds). It generally refers to cultivars of some of the Cucurbita pepo, Cucurbita mixta, Cucurbita maxima and Cucurbita moschata species and is native to North America.
Taxonomy. All pumpkins are winter kvash, ripe fruits of some species of the genus Cucurbita. Features often used to define pumpkins include smooth, slightly puckered skin and a dark yellow to orange color.
There are five common types of Cucurbita: Ficifolia (Chilacayote Squash and Malabar Squash), Maxima (Hubbard, Lakota, Buttercup and Winter Squash), Mixta (Cushaw Squash), Moschata (Shakertown Field and Long Island Cheese Squash) and Pepo (jackolantern variety , tender gourds, ornamental gourds).
Great attention was paid to large and giant pumpkins. The most popular variety is affectionately known as Jack Be Little Pumpkin and is often abbreviated as JBL. Most Jack Be Little miniature pumpkins fit in the palm of your hand and are orange. There is also a mini white pumpkin called Baby Boo.
I want to say this in advance. I’m pretty sure the answer is no, there are no pumpkins growing a natural black pumpkin, but I’ve seen other pumpkins that are very dark in color, so I can’t be 100%.
Pumpkin is considered a fruit.
We cut around the trunk to create an opening. This filiform substance is called pulp. There are a lot of seeds in the pumpkin!
All pumpkins start out as seeds. With lots of sun and water, the pumpkin seed turns into a winter squash. Angiosperm: Flowering plant, the seeds of which are enclosed in an ovary. Cucurbita: genus of the gourd family Cucurbitaceae, comprising gourd and gourd.
Some vegetables such as tomatoes are known to have poisonous leaves, but the leaves and flowers of squash plants are edible. Although we only grow plants like lettuce and kale for the leaves, it never crossed my mind to eat pumpkin leaves.
Botanically it’s a fruit
Pumpkins thrive best when the seeds are planted directly into the ground. If your growing season is very short, sow indoors in peat pots about 2-4 weeks before the previous spring frost. Make sure you heal before the transplant. Wait for the potting soil to reach 70 ° F or more before sowing the seeds.
More precisely, pumpkins denote the fruits of the plants of the two genera Cucurbitaceae Lagenaria and Cucurbita or their hollow and dried shells. A pumpkin can also have a hard shell after it has dried. Bitter melon / balsamic apple / balsamic pear is also called pumpkin.
Bianca, the new orange for pumpkins. Terrifying white pumpkins - white, of course, unpainted - are making their way into more and more homes this Halloween season. Albinos are referred to as Ghost Pumpkins, Snowballs, Luminas, or Caspers, probably a reference to the friendly spirit.
Cucurbita moschata is an annual two-leaved vegetable, with creeping or climbing stems (up to 5 m high) bearing tendrils. The stems are robust, cylindrical or pentagonal, with 12-30 cm long petioles. The stems and leaves are slightly hairy.
Pumpkin plants belong to the pumpkin family and are a one-way street. As a result of this research, plants previously classified as monocot and dicot were reclassified into monocot, eudicot and basal angiosperms. Pumpkins are eudicotosi. Learn more about pumpkins and eudicots at The Daily Garden.
