The pumpkin’s flesh is eaten cooked as a vegetable, fried, au gratin, together with sauces and as garnish for several dishes. However, this flesh is somewhat insipid so it is usually seasoned with aromatic herbs. The winter varieties are widely used in confectionery. Pumpkins are cultivated both for the fruit as for their seeds, which can be consumed as dry fruits or used to obtain fuel oil and cooking oil. The leaves and the flowers are also consumed as vegetables.
