Also known as wheat melon, papaya, Japanese melon, golden melon, Fu melon, rice melon, Chinese pumpkin . Pumpkin is a kind of annual trailing herbaceous plant in the Cucurbitaceae family. Its wild ancestors are native to Mexico and Guatemala. They were introduced to China very early and are widely cultivated and eaten, so it is called “Chinese pumpkin”. Both the pulp and seeds of pumpkin are edible, and the flowers are also edible. In our country, pumpkins are both used as vegetables and as food substitutes, and are very popular in rural areas. In recent years, people have discovered that pumpkins can not only satisfy their hunger, but also have a certain therapeutic value, so the earthy pumpkins have come to the fore.
