How to Roast <Squash and Pumpkin Seeds>

< Previous | Next >


"Squash and Pumpkin Seeds" sounds a bit odd to me because "squash seeds include pumpkin seeds." For squash is defined as "A squash is one of a family of vegetables that have thick skin and soft or firm flesh inside."(Collins).

Does the title sound natural to you native speakers?
