It can feel like living in a pumpkin surround-sound in late October, a world awash with pumpkin hues, pumpkin tastes, pumpkin-shaped treats, and pumpkin-themed events.

This full pumpkin tude starts in August at some locations, with the spicy lattes coming out first, then the muffins and cookies, and finally all sorts of dessert-y delights, the orange-mignon temptations that are covered in icing c i.e. as shiny as a pumpkin.

But there are other fall fruits that fill local plots when fall begins, and incorporating these star produce into our succulent temptations can feel like adding another sweet dimension to our pumpkin-filled lives. .

Look at the magnificent Kabochathe Japanese squash known for its delicious appearance in all kinds of savory dishes, from pastas to soups to curries.
