Are Pumpkins leafs and seeds edible?




Pumpkin leaves and seeds are indeed edible. By eating pumpkin leaves, you have an additional source of green veg at your fingertips for you to harvest throughout the pumpkin growing season. The leafs are high in calcium, iron and also high in Vitamin A and Vitamin C, everything we need to be ready for winter weather in Norway.


One of the main reasons that many people might assume pumpkin leaves aren’t edible is because of the spiky outside layer and the thick spine that holds the leaf together. These defenses can seem daunting at first, but they are removable and should not be a deterrent in becoming a pumpkin leaf eater.

Preparing pumpkin leaves can be time consuming, but the process is not especially difficult. I always play some music or a podcast in the background and it makes anything so much better!
