Pumpkins are grown all around the world for a variety of reasons ranging from agricultural purposes (such as animal feed) to commercial and ornamental sales. Of the seven continents, only Antarctica is unable to produce pumpkins. The traditional American pumpkin used for jack-o-lanterns is the Connecticut field variety. According to the Illinois Department of Agriculture, 95% of the U.S. crop intended for processing is grown in Illinois.

    I recently got a chance to visit a pumpkin field. So jealous that we don't have any near Phoenix. The ones that get shipped in are nice, but not like what you see everywhere in "pumpkin country".
