Pumpkin Flowers have a lovely sweet mild pumpkin flavour. Pick them early in the morning when they are in full bloom. Pick the male flowers, the female flowers have a tiny pumpkin at the base. Leave the female to grow into a pumpkin.
Pumpkin flowers are also delicious to cook. However, I have never eaten them but I know they are edible.
This vegetable, pumpkin boasts more than good looks. It’s also full of nutrition, dishing up vitamin C, beta-carotene, fiber, and potassium. One half cup of cooked pumpkin provides a day’s supply of vitamin A.
