The Quiz: Which of the following is true about these fall favorites?

All squash are pumpkins
All pumpkins are squash
All gourds are pumpkins
All squash are gourds

Explanation : Pumpkins, squash, and gourds belong to the Cucurbitaceae family, which contains more than 900 species of fruits. The relationship between these three autumn essentials is complicated. Squash can be divided into two broad categories: summer squash and winter squash. Pumpkins, along with butternut and acorn squashes, are winter squash. So, all pumpkins are squash but not all squash are pumpkins. The key identifier for a gourd is that they are grown for decoration, not for eating. So, gourds are basically an inedible squash. To further complicate things, pumpkins can also be considered a gourd, especially the decorative ones not meant for eating.

Correct Answer: All pumpkins are squash
