What are pepitas and where do they come from?
Most pepita seeds that are sold come from a specific type of pumpkin that is harvested only for its green, hulless seed. These pumpkins are known as Styrian or Oil Seed pumpkins. They even have cool names like Lady Godiva and Naked Bear. Unlike the traditional white pumpkin seed you may be familiar with, these pumpkins have a green, hulless seed and very little of the orange flesh that you may see when you cut open a traditional pumpkin. Although you can hull them, the end product of a hulled white pumpkin seed is less tender and slightly fibrous.
