Cucurbita pedatifolia is a xerophyte plant species of the genus Cucurbita. It is native to QuerĂ©taro, Mexico. It has not been domesticated. While C. pedatifolia has been cross bred, results have met with limited success. It does not cross well with other species of Cucurbita. It is a close relative of Cucurbita radicans. Geographic location and genetics make it highly likely that Cucurbita scabridifolia is a naturally occurring hybrid of Cucurbita foetidissima and C. pedatifolia. It also has some mesophyte traits may represent a transitional state between the mesophytic Cucurbita and the mesophytic Cucurbita.

The species was formally described by Liberty Hyde Bailey in 1943, in Gentes Herbarum.
