Green Pumpkins are Cucurbita winter squash cultivars with green skin. Green pumpkin preparation is very similar to other types of winter squash preparation.
Green pumpkins can be roasted, steamed, or baked with other sweet or savory fillings. Green pumpkin seeds are just as tasty as traditional jack-o-lantern seeds when roasted.
Aside from its culinary applications, a small green pumpkin is an excellent indoor decoration piece in harvest baskets or other fall-themed displays.
