Pumpkin Gas?

       	I know that I am about to ask the stupidest question
known to man, but I have always told my students that only
stupid question is the one you are afraid to ask so here goes.

        I taught high school Biology several years ago and one 
of my former students was talking to me today and asked, "What 
is the gas found inside a pumpkin and where does it come from?"  
I would think that the wax cuticle on the outside of the pumpkin 
would keep air exchange to a minimum so I have no idea.

        Thanks!
