Fortified Pumpkins are recurring Items in The Legend of Zelda series.[1][2]

Location and Uses

Breath of the Wild

Fortified Pumpkins are one of three foodstuffs favoured by the Sheikah race, with the others being Swift Carrots and Mighty Bananas. They are primarily and exclusively cultivated by the Sheikah farmer Olkin, who sells 8 from his field in Kakariko Village, because his rival Steen refuses to have them stocked at his wife's shop. There are nine pumpkin plants in the patch, yet only eight bear fruit, with Olkin tending to the ninth; this is likely where Mellie gets the Fortified Pumpkins to cook. They may also be dropped by defeated Hinox. During the evening, Olkin's wife Mellie cooks him dishes containing many fortified pumpkins,[3] which Olkin feels is way better than Swift Carrots.[4] Some may also be purchased from Cambo as he leaves Kakariko Village, implying he bought some from Olkin, however this does not reduce Olkin's stock. When cooked in a dish, the resulting food provides Link with temporarily superior defence.
