Pumpkins are a gourd fruit that grows on vines particularly popular in Uganda and South Africa where pumpkins grow naturally well in rich African soil. Pumpkins are a fruit botanically despite most people considering pumpkins a vegetable. 

They are eaten many different West and South African food recipes used in stews, side dishes, and baking. Sugar pumpkins are smaller, sweeter, and less stringy than the bigger size pumpkins which makes sugar pumpkins a great choice for cooking stews and many recipes. 

Pro-tip: Cut all the sugar pumpkin into similar-sized pieces for more even cooking.
