As you know, there are many well-known national symbols in our country such as the national animal, national bird, national flower, etc. But what about the national vegetable? Many people are not aware that the national vegetable of India is the Indian pumpkin, commonly known as ‘kaddu’. 

The Indian pumpkin grows all over the country and can be grown as a climber or a creeper. What makes this vegetable special is that it doesn’t require any special soil conditions or properties to grow and can be grown without much effort. Hence, it is also referred to as a poor person’s vegetable. 

Furthermore, multiple dishes can be prepared with this one vegetable as it is easy to cook and combines well with different flavours. It has a sweet taste that pairs well with daals and other vegetables as well. The Indian pumpkin is popular in all parts of tropical India and grows extremely well in hot conditions and can be grown even in the hottest months of the year.
