I've wondered about the pumpkin/squash/gourd/marrow thing, too.
In the Viennese codex "Tacunium Sanitatis," a 13th?-14th? century health manual, there is an illustration of people harvesting what the translator calls "pumpkins." The pumpkins look like hubbard squashes. The particular translation I have access to is called "The Four Seasons of the House of Cerruti," and I believe does not include the entire codex.
Any nutritional anthropologists out there?
