is much confusion with regard to the use of the words "pumpkin"
and "squash". The words have been used indiscriminately by
growers, consumers and the seed industry. These words refer to culinary
traits rather than taxonomic classifications. Squash
is usually divided into two categories: "Summer squash" and
When pumpkin or
squash is grown for confectionary seed, the seed processor determines the
variety to be used. The most commonly used is 'Golden Delicious' squash
and proprietary selections of that type. Plant spacings are reduced and
plant populations are increased to produce more seed per acre. Fruit size
becomes a secondary concern.
