Most often associated with lanterns at Hallowe'en, pumpkins have a sweet, honey flavour and they are especially popular in North America. When choosing a pumpkin, it should have a smooth skin and be firm to the touch. Smaller pumpkins contain more flesh and are best for eating. Pumpkin is a source of antioxidant beta-carotene, and a good source of the phytochemical lutein.
