This is a universal addition to many dishes: they are added to ice cream, oatmeal, salads, yogurts … Many people like to use them separately, frying them in a pan with the addition of aromatic seasonings.

Scientists believe that the pumpkin began to be cultivated in South America, from where it spread throughout the world. Seeds contain a lot of fiber, healthy fats and acids that protect the cardiovascular system. The fruit was also used in everyday life, for example, the Indians made dishes from it. Now pumpkin grows on all continents except Antarctica. Its maximum weight is 35 kg.
