Pumpkin seed is the edible seed of a pumpkin or certain other cultivars of squash. The seeds are typically flat and asymmetrically oval, have a white outer husk, and are light green in color after the husk is removed.

The pressed oil of the roasted seeds is also used in Central and Eastern Europe as cuisine. Pumpkin seeds can also be made into a nut butter. Pumpkin seeds can also be used steeped in neutral alcohol.
