Pumpkin Flower

Pumpkin Flower 1

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.

  1. The fall harvest, with pumpkins squash, eggplant, tomatoes, is the most beautiful and it occurs right before the death of autumn, winter. My favorite season is fall.
