Pumpkin -

The most highly prized of the squash family, grown in many varieties and varying in size from that of a large orange to a weight of fifty or more pounds. It is occasionally cooked as a vegetable, but its principal use is in the form of "pumpkin pies." The season begins in this country in November, continuing to February or March.

Pumpkins may be kept fresh until spring if fully ripe when gathered and the storage place is dry, cool and protected from frost. The best method is to place them on shelves, seeing that they do not touch each other and occasionally wiping them off with a dry cloth. Peeled, cut up, sun-dried and properly stored, they can be used all the year.
