P is for Pumpkin

Pumpkin is a fruit that you can have great fun with as well as eat. It is fun to put scary faces on them for Halloween and even more fun when you eat pumpkin pie. Pumpkins can be huge. They can weigh up to 800 pounds or more. They can be so small you can hold them in the palm of your hand. They can be orange or white like a ghost.
