Pumpkin is a common vegetable grown throughout the Pacific region. Its young leaves, tendrils, and growing points can be consumed as leafy greens. Pumpkins grow best during cooler periods in the year but do not fare well in wet and humid environments because of the risk of contracting fungal diseases (Bailey, 1992).
