Aside from Antarctica, Did you know that you can grow a pumpkin on almost any continent in the world? I think it is safe to say that all of our ancestors probably enjoyed a scrumptious pumpkin pie in their day. People across the globe enjoy carving, eating and launching the well known largest fruit in the world.
To break it down to number s that both you and I understand…..Just in the state of Illinois, which is covered by approximately 26.8 million acres of farmland, the USDA reports 250,000 tons/year of pumpkins produced on an average. WOW, I wonder how many are consumed in the Chicagoland area?
Can you just imagine the amount of pumpkins that are carved in Chicago?
