With Hallowe’en less than three weeks away, may I remind you that Autumn is the time for pumpkins, gourds, calabazas, marrows, squashes, melons, whatever you want to call them. All of them come under the genus of the Cucurbitaceae family, originating in the Americas. They come in all shapes, forms and sizes, and some of them are very attractive in a decorative sort of way.

Calabazas are widespread in Mallorca, not only the melons, Sandías or Cantaloupes. Melons even have their own annual Fira del Meló in Vilafranca de Bonany, at the beginning of September.

The photo was taken near Felanitx, Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: September 25th, 2009. The time was 14:53:20.
