For the oil seeds (Styrian pumpkin seeds) Zima is growing, the flesh we find to be rather testless, they are not good as local grown pumpkins. This is because 96% of them are water. But if you treat it more as a vegetable soup or stew vege, it still has its use in the kitchen, grated it could be used in a place of courgette or marrow in some recipes. We will often use it as pig or chicken food over the slower grass growth months, just harvesting the seeds as we need them. For the local pumpkin seeds, the flesh is dried and cooked as vegetable or grinded to provide pumpkin flour that used in porridge, soup or baking.
