Part Description

LP15135-4   Cucurbita pepo seed
The Pumpkin is thought to have originated in Central America, possibly Mexico, but it is now grown widely in both temperate and tropical zones. It is an annual climber, typically with a large, round, ribbed, edible orange fruit. But Pumpkin comes in several other forms, such as the finer-textured, straw-colored Cheese pumpkin, the Gem squash and the Winter squash. All of these have a hard, smooth rind, sometimes lightly ribbed, covering edible flesh and the central seed cavity. Varieties within and between species can cross-pollinate to produce hybrids: hence the great number of shapes and sizes. Pumpkins, however, can be differentiated from other squashes by their fruit stalk: it is angular and polygonal in Pumpkins but thick, soft and round in other squashes.

Pumpkin seeds are consumed as a snack in many cultures throughout the world and are especially popular in Central American countries, where strains have been selected primarily for edible seed use. World production of the seed for food, on the other hand, is meagre.

Pumpkin can induce symptoms of food allergy in sensitised individuals. Dermatitis, asthma, rhinoconjuctivitis, itching of the mouth, angioedema of the face and lips, generalised itching and mild dyspnoea after eating Pumpkin soup or vermicelli made with Pumpkin have been reported in a patient. Similar symptoms have been reported in 3 individuals after ingestion of roasted Pumpkin seed. Copyright Copyright © 2006 Phadia AB. Source: ImmunoCap, ImmunoCap
