How to Draw a Pumpkin

A pumpkin is a very useful squash fruit that is used for everything
from pies and snack foods to decorations and even home
remedies. Most of us are accustomed to seeing (and purchasing)
orange pumpkins, but believe it or not pumpkins start out with a
deep green tone.

In some cases, a pumpkin may never ripen to its bright orange
color. Some pumpkin fans actually like the stubborn green ones,
often referring to them as "unique."

a pumpkin can grow up to 500 lbs. or more!
