Artist's Description

taken at Green Animals in Portsmouth, Rhode Island.

I have looked up squash and found them listed under both fruits and vegetables. According to Wikipedia, there are those “vegetables” that are fruits in the botanical sense, but are used as vegetables:
tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, zucchinis, pumpkins, peppers, eggplant, tomatillos, chayote, okra, breadfruit, avocado, pods, seeds such as corn, green beans and snow peas.

Most Cucurbita species are climbing annual vines and are mesophytes (requiring adequate water). Cucurbita have phytochemical constituents such as alkaloids, flavonoids, and palmitic, plus oleic and linoleic acids. Pumpkins have anti-diabetic, antioxidant, anticarcinogen, and anti-inflammatory pharmacological properties include.96 Pumpkins and pumpkin seeds have high levels of crude protein, calcium, iron, potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, zinc,9798 and beta-carotene.99 Squashes are good sources of vitamin A, vitamin C, potassium, dietary fiber, niacin, folic acid, and iron. They are free of fat and cholesterol.
