Pumpkin Curiosities:There are many varieties of pumpkin and we can distinguish between winter and summer pumpkins:
Summer varieties are thin-skinned and soft-seeded. It has a short shelf life. Within this variety is the bonetera squash (white, green or yellow) or the yellow spaghetti pumpkin.
Winter ones tend to be sweeter, with less water content and thicker skin. The best time to consume it is right after harvest, in late autumn.
