Pumpkins- Decoration or Food?

Fall is such a wonderful season for colorful falling leaves, hay rides, carved jack-o’-lanterns, Halloween costumes, pumpkin flavored foods, autumn gatherings, and pumpkin patches!

Pumpkin carving is one the best Halloween activities families can engage in together, if it is done in a safe and controlled environment. Most children love digging out the seeds and strings of the inside of a pumpkin and decorating pumpkins with glitter, glue, craft paint and markers. This is a great time for family bonding and this creates some of the best holiday memories.

Festive pre-painted and decorated cute pumpkins are available for purchase in stores. I have received questions on whether these craft-painted pumpkins are safe to eat after the holiday.

Are pumpkins decorated with craft paint edible?

“It is well known that glitter and other decorating materials are not intended for human consumption. There is little research on whether craft paint and markers penetrate the flesh of pumpkins or on the toxicity of other decorative products used on pumpkins. Mature pumpkins have quite thick skins. If these pumpkins are painted, individuals can wash the paint off the outside of the pumpkin (if possible), at the end of the display. This washing also eliminates any remaining dirt. Then carefully peel and/or cut the skin off before using the flesh and seeds for food.”

 

– Dr. Amarat Simonne, Professor and Extension Specialist (Food Safety and Quality) UF/IFAS Extension Family Youth and Community Sciences

There are other safety considerations to keep in mind. Families and consumers should be informed about these safety concerns. All pumpkins should be carved by an adult and/or youth should only carve pumpkins under the supervision of an adult.

Knife safety should be prioritized at this time of the year. There are special pumpkin carving tools that are specifically designed to help with this activity. Children should be supervised closely if using a knife to carve a pumpkin, since their motor skills may not be fully developed. Younger children with poor hand-eye coordination should not use knives.

If you would like to use pumpkin in your favorite recipe, buy two pumpkins, one for carving and decorating and the other one for eating. This will also help sustain and support pumpkin farmers!

Pumpkin soup, pumpkin seeds, fresh roasted pumpkin, pumpkin pie and pumpkin bread, are among some of our favorite foods.

Think about food safety when planning to prepare these foods using fresh pumpkin. After a carved pumpkin has been left at room temperature for several hours or even days, the meat is not safe to eat. Bacteria can begin to grow, and you don’t want to risk a foodborne illness. Do not let cut pumpkin sit out at room temperature for more than two hours during preparation, prior to use.

When in doubt, throw it out.

Lastly pumpkins do have some nutritional value. Pumpkins are a source of vitamin A, beta-carotene, vitamin C, potassium and fiber.

Hi Michael, thank you for your comment. I have given you the most up to date links at the end of the article. Unfortunately, there's not much we can do. However, since the vector is an insect that pupates under the soil, using beneficial nematodes around the target palms may be helpful in lowering the numbers of these insects that spread the disease from tree to tree. You can find beneficial nematodes at many suppliers on line that sell beneficial insects. Hope this helps.

We have taken them in, hung christmas lights, covered individuals, piled up & covered with old camping tents (with bottom removed). Determined to get them out of pots, this year has been too rainy.

Donna Castro

July 27, 2021

Hi Wanda, I don't suggest mounting on palm boots, because they tend to fall off, and then your orchid goes with it. Trunk is OK, though, or other trees and palms, depending on the orchid and their sun/shade requirements. How likely is it to freeze where you are? Short of 32 degrees, they are safe. You can cover them with cloth if you suspect a hard freeze. Hope this helps, Donna

For more than a year, the whole planet is suffering from the corona pandemic. It caused a lot of panic, fear, and anxiety. People started to worry more about themselves, their families, and their beloved ones, which led them to take some more protective actions.

I don't usually do any pruning when they are on trees. If they are turning brown, they may not be getting enough water or too much sun, or have come loose. Be sure they are attached snugly. You can cut off the dead parts if you wish.

Donna Castro

June 28, 2021

Hi John, Thanks for your response. I am well aware of the benefits of Bidens alba for pollinators. I am a beekeeper myself, and I do know they adore it. However, Bidens is a bit of a weed bully, and proliferates and overtakes many other valuable plants, such as the mimosa, which is also great for pollinators. So, while I appreciate it's merits including its being edible, there are times when we need to control it, and that was the basis for this article. Thanks for understanding. Regarding Pine Straw (Needle) mulch, I haven't had any issues with my source, The Bushel Stop.

John Ward
June 27, 2021

Hi Donna, I wish you had mentioned that the Bidens is also one of our best pollinator plants. Where they are a weed to you, they are wanted by others. They should be left whenever the chance arises. Our pollinators will be helped immensely. You should also mention that there are varying degrees of straw. Some is filthy and full of weed seeds and should be avoided. It can make the problem much worse. Now that I've stopped using it my weeds are going away. If they sit too long mice and rats can infest the bales. Your article was very good in spite of these few mentions. I also love the Mimosa. Just FYI. Thanks for what you do!

Hi Luis, I hear what you are saying, but even if you grow them in pots, and you have a lot of iguanas around, the blooms will be eaten. I have all my orchids, probably close to 100 on trees and rarely have a problem. If you have an infestation of iguanas, you may want to hire a trapper to help control them. It is a serious problem for all or our landscape plants.

Luis Fontanills
June 17, 2021

Regrettably, down here in South Florida with the iguana invasion, the blooms are a favorite food. I am lucky if I bloom lasts more than a day or two before it is eaten. Typically the pseudobulbs and leaves will not be eaten, but then you can’t enjoy the flowers, so be warned.

Donna Castro

June 16, 2021

Good to know! It is the best; flexible, the color blends well and lasts long enough for the orchid to attach securely.

Donna Castro

June 16, 2021

Michael, I am assuming they are in pots? The one that seldom blooms is most likely not getting enough sun. What kind is it? The struggling one, if not already on a tree, should be placed on one. That usually heals them. If it is on a tree, it may not be in the right amount of light, or not receiving enough moisture; again, what kind is it?

Michael Walkowski
June 16, 2021

Donna, when should we divide our orchids? I have one cluster, very green, seldom a bloom. One that is struggling and hasn't bloomed for years with very little growth. Each orientated appropriately.

Very valuable post! Agreed with you, While getting ready food make certain to begin with clean hands, work surfaces and utensils. Continuously wash new products of the soil under running water prior to getting ready food sources. This even incorporates food you are stripping, similar to those avocados for your guacamole. One thing you would prefer not to wash are the chicken wings! Flushing meat or poultry under running water, brings about sprinkling of water beads onto different surfaces, cooking wares or food, causing pollution with unsafe microorganisms.

I understand what you are teaching, but I'm still going to do it the way I have always done. I'm always VERY careful when handling chicken and follow the usual precautions. I don't wash chicken to get germs off. I wash chicken because I'm taking the skin and fat off, and doing it under running water is helpful to do that, and makes it easier. I figure it has stuff that needs to be washed off from processing, as well. I have to wash my hands anyway. Pork chops or steak don't need that, so they don't get washed. Grandmothers are not stupid, if they didn't have to wash it, why take the time to do that?

Hi Rich, I totally agree with you! I have about 6 of these trees in my yard and the bees love them! They are a fantastic plant, growing into a small tree as you said, and giving copious blooms year round! I was sticking to natives in that article, which is why I didn't mention it. Thank you for calling attention to it. Bee well.

Great article Donna, I am a particular fan of Melochia, and Jamaican Caper, but you should have mentioned Sweet Almond as well, in my back yard it grows to over 12ft tall so fits into this grouping perfectly. In fact, in less than two years it has outgrown my Jamaican Caper that has been there for probably 8 years. Taller and wider. Rich

Hi Donna, I love your content, the post is awesome -engaging, insightful and simplified. I must confess, I learnt some tips on orchids. With your tips people would find it much easy to care for their orchids. Just to contribute a little to the post if you don't mind. What to check when buying orchids matters. Here are my tips: • Look for orchids with firm, plump and unblemished leaves • Check to see that the compost is moist. But if the compost is too dry, it’s a sign of neglect, don’t buy. • Check the drainage hole: a few small roots shooting out from the bottom is a good sign. It is a sign of neglect if many roots are shooting out from the bottom because the plant is ready to be potted. • Don’t buy when the pot is packed with a mass of roots so that little soil is visible at surface. It’s a sign of neglect, except you intend potting to a larger container almost immediately when you bring them home • Ensure the pot plant is well labelled with care tag • Don’t buy plants with broken or damaged leaves • Avoid plants that the leaves are lop-sided (not turgid) • Lastly, be bold to turn and examine the leaf underneath for signs of pests and diseases. If you see any, avoid completely. What do you think Matt? Goodstuff, keep up the awesome work Cheers!

This is an eye opener for me. before reading it, I didn't see the importance of a food thermometer but for restaurants. Another eye opener is the fact that the spread of microbes and bacteria need to be contained by limiting and properly washing the utensils used before and after handling row chicken to avoid cross-contamination. Cooking row chicken without washing it makes lots of sense, only after being expose to this UF Blog.

Good points and tips. It is sometimes frustrating as an arborist when we explain to our customers about how we prune, and why. I try to advise my clientele that a healthy tree is always a safer tree. Also, as an industry expert, it's your responsibility to uphold the ANSI 300 standards, and it's your license on the line. Keep up the good work; our trees need more folks in the industry like yourself. Thank you.

These are good questions; thanks for asking! BT is considered OMRI safe, but it's always a good idea to wash your veggies and fruits prior to eating. As for their status as endangered; not at all. When it comes to your tomatoes; it's either you or them, and you have to do something, or else, your plants will be decimated in short order. Here is an article that will give more details: https://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/pdffiles/IN/IN19700.pdf Hope this is helpful.

I bought an orchid at Home Depot and moved it into my crape myrtle when it finished blooming. Wish I could figure out how to post a picture,,, It has three bloom spikes coming along now, and the roots are spreading nicely to secure it. It needed protection when it got cold recently but other than that completely carefree and looking very happy! (Fleming Island, near Jax FL)

Thank YOU Donna! Perhaps this course could be 'promoted' to all the garden clubs in Florida? I feel that it would be VERY beneficial to include garden club members who are interested in our Florida Environment, are active within our communities, HOA's and local governments. Garden Club members in fact are wonderful 'activists' for the environment. Why not include them in the promotion of GI-BMP courses? Thank you for all you do to keep our beautiful state safe and protected.

Dead Right, Donna. Lots of palm trees too here in Florida that looking like more like pineapple tops after their "hurricane cuts"! It's good to spread the word on what makes a good trim that benefits a tree's long-term health. Not enough people know. Some of my arborist clients say they are torn between doing what the client wants (yes, even hat-racking sometimes) and what's good for a tree's vigor and longevity. A good way to weed out the amateur tree firms is to ask to see their latest insurance certificates (General Liability and Workers Comp). If they skimp on coverage, it's unlikely they'll follow American Standards for best practice tree pruning (ANSI -A300). Start A Tree Business The Right Way

I agree! They are so much happier and easier to maintain on a tree that meets their light requirements. As for the pantyhose, I haven't worn those in years! They work well if you have them, but t-shirt or any flexible cotton fabric works as well. Thanks for the tips.

AJ Pasko
August 27, 2020

I no longer keep any orchids in pots. After they drop their flowers, I cut off the spent flower spikes, trim back the pot bound roots and move them out into the trees. I use strips of old panty hose to attach the orchids. Panty hose is very elastic and holds the orchids snug against the tree bark. It will eventually disintigrate, leaving the orchid and tree in a true epiphitic relationship. If you appreciate the sunlight requirements of the different orchid types, you will have great success

Thanks for mentioning that covering your nose and mouth when coughing and avoid touching your face are just some of the preventative measures to spreading germs. The manager of the store I work in is considering getting sneeze screens for our registers because our owner is thinking of opening more lines for customers to use. I think it's wise for my manager to consider getting equipment from a reputable supplier to help prevent spreading germs.

Hi Brenda, nice list here. Simple and sweet. As a licensed therapist, I have also been suggesting many of these items to my clients. I have especially been suggestive of going for a walk outside if possible. It gets some exercise, sunshine and good thinking time which is similar to meditation. It all depends on the client because some clients really struggle with "being in their own thoughts" so I recommend talking on the phone with someone they care about. I like your list because it's not an exact science for every person because every needs something different. Thanks again for the reminders on a few others though!

Great blog! Growing hydroponically helps a balanced life as it greatly contributes to adopting the right nutrition choices; If able to do it at home, it helps the family life with doable projects and budget, especially now with a pandemic and a new normal.

Star fruit upside down cake is beautiful and delicious. Use the same recipe for pineapple upside down cake substituting the pineapple with starfruit. Substitute pineapple juice with passionfruit juice. The star shapes on top the cake are lovely and festive.

Thank you for the compliment; I truly appreciate it. I agree with you; why not plant to feed the wildlife and ourselves first? Attracting butterflies and birds make our yards come alive!

Thank you for the best practices and keeping us update. Yes, we are entering into new waters, and in a multidimensional way; indeed, year 2020 marks the beginning of exponentially new ways to do and see the world. Today more than ever, success requires a learning based, radically open minded mentality, fast adoption and adapting to be uncomfortable. The jobs of today most likely wont exist in ten years or even less. Seamless, organizations have visionaries and shapers, need to quickly adapt and move fast in adoption, and it is happening with the help of COVID-19, which is already contributing to massive remote work adoption, that otherwise would be having a slow process of internalization to be fully embraced. Also, it is helping to deploy a radical change in our culture, the way our society operates, and it will accelerate evolution in unthinkable ways. As streets are empty social media platforms are full of live. For UF/IFAS Extension, embracing online learning and similar ways to serve the community in a relevant way, the data from the community should be scrutinized and readily available for fast adoption and fast deployment to truly impact the community. This should be a key component of the upcoming road map. I just hope this is the right venue to elaborate and brainstorm on this.

I have a young mango tree in my backyard in Orlando, Fl. which is not flowering as usual this year 2019. In years 2016 and 2017 it yield rich flavored fruit. In year 2018 this beautiful tree did not gave flowers nor fruit due to a cold season which put all leaves out. This year 2019 it is full of big green leaves and at this very moment, June 16, 2019, new leaves are still developing. In years 2016 and 2017 this "mayaguezano" tree (quite similar to "Kent" variety) got thousand of flowers by March and juicy mangos by June. This June is running and no flowers seems to appear. Is it normal considering changes observed in world's climate. Is it possible to expect flowers and fruit by late October this year? Thanks for your time and answer.

Frequent hand washing has become a habit, with a surplus of minimum exposure to getting sick. Valid recommendation: Keep in mind MyPlate, the doctor, sleep, hydrate, stress, and exercise!

Juan Sierra

I inferred that edible plants and fruits with hard layer are less susceptible to poisoning and contamination; still, cleaning and washing is required as a vital part of the food preparation.
