pumpkin seed, also known in North America as a pepita (from the Mexican Spanishpepita de calabaza, "little seed of squash"), is the edible seed of a pumpkin or certain other cultivars of squash. The seeds are typically flat and asymmetrically oval, has a white outer husk, and is light green in color after the husk is removed. Some cultivars are huskless, and are grown only for their edible seed. The seeds are nutrient- and calorie-rich, with especially high content of fat (particularly linoleic acid and oleic acid), proteindietary fiber, and numerous micronutrientsPumpkin seed can refer either to the hulled kernel or unhulled whole seed, and most commonly refers to the roasted end product used as a snack

Pumpkin seeds were once used as an anthelmintic in traditional medicine by indigenous people of North America to expel tapeworms and other intestinal parasites.[citation needed] This led to the seeds being listed in the United States Pharmacopoeia as an antiparasitic from 1863 until 1936. Information from wikipedia
