In a field of fruit…or vegetable?. Pumpkin patch
It's not too late to pick up a pumpkin to add some Halloween flair to your doorstep. What is a pumpkin exactly? You might think they're vegetables, but botanists say they're the fruit of pumpkin vines. They're considered fruit because pumpkins contain seeds and grow from the same part of the plant that produces flowers. Whether you opt to consume or carve, we invite you to enjoy this fruit of the spookiest season!
