The average pumpkin contains 500 seeds. The number of seeds in a pumpkin varies based on a pumpkin's size and weight, with a range of 100 seeds up to 700 seeds.
The only accurate way to determine how many seeds are in a pumpkin is to cut it open and count the seeds. However, the number of seeds can be estimated by multiplying the number of fruiting sections of the pumpkin by 16.
Pumpkin seeds are frequently consumed as a snack or on top of salads and baked dishes. The seeds are a good source of protein and fiber, and they also contain significant amounts of zinc, manganese, iron and other minerals.
