Kenya pumpkin is one of the most nutritious of all squash family foods of which this pot-bellied variety goes under the botanical name Cucurbita pepo. The plant grows to a medium height with mostly leaves and angular, rough stems that run in twists along the grounds especially in cool regions of the country. The flower of the pumpkin is distinctly of the same color as a ripe fruit, both being a healthy yellow or light orange when ripe. The fruit itself contains some few ribs over its otherwise very firm but smooth skin.

Many family growers cultivate Kenya pumpkin for its leafy green leaves that go well with maize, beans and potato mix and the fruit. Much of the fruit features into the broth including seeds, though locally many families do away with seeds and go for the pulpy yellow flesh. Around the world, this vegetable is edible in its complete form, including the flowers, leaves, seeds and even the outer shell.

It is possible to enjoy your Kenya pumpkin as a stew, a roast, boiled delicacy or even a puree from its mashed form. There are many soups and purees around the United States and Canada that go into Thanksgiving recipes all made of the huge berry. In Asia, it is possible to eat the vegetable’s seeds after roasting them into a light nibbling cake.

The nutritional composition of Kenya pumpkin is quite high in terms of vitamins and energy. It adds 26 calories and provides energy for the whole working day. Constituting a quarter of the daily value per person of pro-vitamin A compounds and 53 percent of the total daily value per person of Vitamin A, this is a fruit that impacts positively on night vision. With its 92 percent water content, it provides vital Vitamin K and prevents dehydration. With 0.1 percent fat content, it is quite the vegetable to partake of to avoid sedentary diseases like diabetes and hypertension.
