Normal five sepal bud. Sepals are the green fingery parts, the lowest/outermost part of the flower... Another part of the flower, the stigma lobes inside the flower, corresponds to ovaries, which are the hollow female part of the pumpkin that contains the seeds. So more lobes does not equal more weight, but they can affect the shape of the pumpkin. And more lobes could correspond to more seeds.
