If zucchini is a squash, are the hard shell ones so called winter squash?
Is pumpkin (from a can) or fresh a vegetable or a fruit?  ??)

Zucchini is a summer squash.  There are also yellow summer squash.  All summer squash have a very soft, tender skin and don't store well long term without freezing, etc.

Winter squash have a hard shell, so store a longer time without spoiling.  Butternut, Buttercup, and Acorn are all winter varieties.

Pumpkin shows up on SWAMI lists in the Live foods section.  I know it grows on a vine like squash, and can be used in both sweet and savory dishes.

Pumpkin is the fruit of the species Cucurbita pepo or Cucurbita mixta. It can refer to a specific variety of the species Cucurbita maxima or Cucurbita moschata, which are all of the genus Cucurbita and the family Cucurbitaceae.

Whether this rates it a fruit or vegetable, I don't know...

Pumpkin went Black Dot for me, so I'll use some superfood squash or sweet potato instead.
