KUSA - Pumpkins aren't just for carving, they are tasty too! When selecting that festive gourd, choose clean, well-shaped pumpkins with no cracks in the rind. Also avoid pumpkins with soft spots or decay. More than just a beautiful decoration, pumpkins are nutritious. They are fat free, sodium free, a good source of Vitamin C and an excellent source of Vitamin A. Look for fresh Colorado pumpkins at your local grocery store, farmers' market or at pumpkin patches across the state.
