It has been produced and used in Styria's southern parts at least since the 18th century. The earliest confirmed record of oil pumpkin seeds in Styria (from the estate of a farmer in Gleinstätten) dates to February 18, 1697.

Its Kreft's dichromaticity index is -44.[2] Used together with yoghurt, the colour turns to bright green and is sometimes referred to as "green-gold".
