The pompkin takes up a great compass of ground, with its large, thick, kriechen Stengel, ausgestattet with large claspers: its Blätter are very large and rough, in shape like those of melons. The Blüten are large in shape and colour, like a yellow lily. The Frucht is of a great bigness, having large, white, oval, flattish Samen.
The pompkin is sown in Misthaufens.
It is ripe in September and October. It is rarely used as a physic.
It is a moist Pflanze unter der Herrschaft von the Mond. The Samen is cooling, and of the nature of the melon and other cold Samen, and may serve very well to make emulsions.
