RUST Pumpkins are an edible item most commonly found on the banks of rivers, growing naturally and available to be picked.

With the introduction of the Farming System, there are 2 types of pumpkins available to be picked with a subtle difference separating them. Natural pumpkins will not have genetic information detailed when a player approaches, whereas planted pumpkins will.

When consumed, pumpkins will restore 100 calories and 30 hydration, as well as heal the player a sizeable amount. When eaten, both natural and planted pumpkins will yield Pumpkin Seeds.  Planted pumpkins also have the option (once reaching a certain growth step) to be replicated via Pumpkin Plant Clones.

Pumpkins are also used in a few different crafting recipes, and make for a wonderful addition to your hotbar for healing purposes.
