Pumpkins are a much loved member of the squash family, Cucurbitaceae.
There are actually only four species of squash but many cultivated varieties have been bred from these four. Here is a multi-coloured collection to brighten your day. If one takes your fancy, just hover over the picture to discover its name.
There are so many beautiful pumpkins around that I have decided to have a Pumpkin Week this week. Watch this space each day for a pumpkin-related post.
