About this deal

Pumpkin is a versatile veg and the star of autumnal classics such as pumpkin soup, aromatic curries and easy roasted pumpkin traybakes. This vegan dish is low in calories but super-satisfying, with flavours of Thai yellow curry paste, lemongrass and creamy coconut milk. It features alternating layers of roasted pumpkin with cherry tomato sauce, nutmeg-spiced spinach and creamy béchamel. This chunky squash also helps to bulk up a creamy risotto, and combines well with prawns in a fragrant fish dish. Within these conditions, pumpkins are considered hardy, and even if many leaves and portions of the vine are removed or damaged, the plant can quickly grow secondary vines to replace what was removed.

Give your bowl a spicy twist by adding chilli flakes plus warming cumin and garam masala, or opt for Thai-inspired flavours such as lemongrass and ginger. Chunky, short pasta such as rigatoni or penne work especially well with this thick sauce as they are easily coated.Water well and mulch to retain moisture at the roots and maintain good air circulation around leaves. We also have an indulgent vegan version made with nut milk and maple syrup, so everyone can enjoy this classic dessert. Young plants may also be available in spring and early summer – ideal if you only want one or two plants, or don’t have space indoors to sow them. Indoor sowing offers more reliable results and gives plants a head start and a longer growing season.

These vigorous plants need plenty of space too – even the more compact bush varieties can easily reach 90cm (3ft) across. For a lighter, dairy-free option, try our vegan pumpkin soup, finished with a mouthwatering coconut and pumpkin seed relish.

Versatile, pumpkins and squash can be roasted, used in stews and curries or blended to make a delicious autumn soup. Within decades after Europeans began colonizing North America, illustrations of pumpkins similar to the modern cultivars Small Sugar pumpkin and Connecticut Field pumpkin were published in Europe. Characteristics commonly used to define pumpkin include smooth and slightly ribbed skin [14] and deep yellow to orange color, [14] although white, green, and other pumpkin colors also exist. What’s more, many pumpkin-spice-flavored sweet treats don’t even have any pumpkin in them — only pumpkin pie spice. The Galeux d'Eysines is mentioned in the Vilmorin-Andrieux vegetable catalogue Les Plantes Potagères in 1883.

In the United States, the carved pumpkin was first associated with the harvest season in general, long before it became an emblem of Halloween. If you are short on time, then this frozen pumpkin cheesecake is a great alternative – it's no-bake and can be made ahead in less than half an hour.Like carrot cake, it combines grated squash with subtle spices and citrus, topped with a fluffy soft cheese frosting. In the fall of 2009, rain in Illinois devastated the Libby's pumpkin crop, which, combined with a relatively weak 2008 crop depleting that year's reserves, resulted in a shortage affecting the entire country during the Thanksgiving holiday season. One of the first things you will do with your pumpkin, whether you're carving or cooking, is scoop out the seeds. Rustle up a pumpkin pie, start the day with fluffy pumpkin pancakes or bake spooky pumpkin muffins, for Halloween.
