||The pumpkin was first named by people in Greece, who called it a "pepon," which means "large melon."
About 500 years ago, expressions like "fall of the leaf" and "fall of the year" were used to explain the time of year when all of the leaves would fall to the ground. Our "fall" season comes from these expressions.
