Pumpkin is not only so tasty but it also has curative effects on several diseases. And now it is cheap too!

Pumpkin is mostly used for sweet dishes in Turkey. Other dishes from pumpkin are not that common here. It is an outstanding fruit at markets when it’s Winter.

Refik Baskaya, a pumpkin planter in Kesan, Edirne, has offered his crops for sale at 1TL/kg. He says that planting pumpkin requires studious care and attention. He added that his pumpkins weigh between 5kg and 35kg. As people buy 5kg at most, they have to cut them and sell in pieces.

He states that sales have increased with the coming new year as people make pumpkin dessert to serve their guests at new year’s night. He expresses that pumpkin is a special fruit with its positive effects on health.
