The Cliffs Interpretation Centre has just prepared the Pumpkin and Maltese Orange marmalade, full of sweet yet tangy flavour. Pumpkins are full of potassium and Vitamin A, while oranges are an excellent source of vitamin C.
Along the Dingli countryside and other rural areas, one may spot pumpkins stacked on roofs of farmhouses. Pumpkins are harvested in late summer, and placed carefully next to the others in rows on roofs as an effective means of space saving storage and to protect them against the action of mice.
Did you know that name pumpkin originated from a Greek word ‘pepon’, meaning ‘large melon”?
