Pumpkins and related squashes were important crops for the Indians and later the pilgrims because they stored well and provided a nutritious food source during the winter months. Pumpkins are rich in carotenoids, which function as antioxidants to defend the body's tissues against oxidative damage, helping to prevent chronic diseases and premature aging.
