Pumpkin Seed


Native to the American continent, pumpkin (or squash) would have been domesticated in Mexico more than 10,000 years ago. Its seeds were used as a diuretic. Settlers in North America crushed them, then mixed them with water, milk or honey to make a vermifuge. Cherokees also used it to treat children’s enuresis (bedwetting).
