Originating as a folk legend from the Balkans, it is associated with the Romani people (who seem to have a wonderful connection with vampiric folklore in general!) According to legend, any inanimate object left outside overnight in the light of the full moon can become a vampire! Look out for a drop of blood on the surface of the pumpkin's skin - it's a clear sign that the vampiric transformation had just begun or ended. A scholarly work from Serbia in the 1930's states that according to the Gypsies, two plants that are most prone to vampiric proclivities are the pumpkin and the watermelon. To destroy plants that have turned into the undead, you need to plunge the plants into boiling water, dump the plants and the water onto the ground, sweep the water and fruit away and then burn the broom.
