There was a tailor living with his wife. They had no child. One day a dervish came at the door of his home and gave them an apple. The wife ate the apple and got pregnant, but nine months later she gave birth to a pumpkin.
Months and years passed. The tailor went to the king's home for work every day while his wife remained in home and played with the pumpkin. She put the pumpkin in front of her and caressed it. And when she was tired of caressing it, she put the pumpkin on the shelf. One day the king's son was looking outside from the porch. He saw a beautiful girl sitting in the small garden who was cutting vegetable plants. He fell in her love and called her: "O, daughter of the tailor! How much are the vegetables in the garden?" The daughter of the tailor lifted her head and answered: "O, the son of the king! O, the prince! How much is star in the sky?" The prince could not answer her question, so he returned back to his home sadly and got sick. They brought him physician, but he was not cured. He had got yellow. At last, he confessed that he had fallen in the love of the daughter of the tailor. The king brought the tailor and said him: "You must give your daughter to my son." The tailor said: "I have no child at all!"
After a while the son of the king got well a little and came out of the bed. He disguised himself as a seller of sweet paste and put a tray of sweet pastes on his head and went in front of the house of the tailor and shouted: "I have sweet paste." The daughter of the tailor opened the door and said: "O seller of sweet paste! How much is the sweet paste?" The son of the king said: "I'll take the ring and will give sweet paste." He took the ring of the girl and gave her sweet paste and went.
At tomorrow, he went to the porch and looked at the tailor's house. The tailor's daughter was again sitting in the garden and was busy to cut vegetables. He said her: "O, daughter of the tailor! How much are the vegetables in the garden?" The daughter of the tailor lifted her head and answered: "O, the son of the king! O, the prince! How much is star in the sky?" The son of the king said: "O the daughter of the tailor! What about the exchange of sweet paste and ring?" The daughter of the tailor could not reply him. This time, the son of the king went gladly and content to his home and wanted to take the daughter of the tailor for him.
Again the king ordered to bring the tailor. The tailor said: "The king be in good health! But I have no child at all." The son of the king got again sick, and day after day he got more unwell.
One day the daughter of the tailor came out of the pumpkin and went into the skin of goat and made her head and face black. Then she held a handkerchief full of dung of donkey and went to the king's son and said him: "If you don't like to be killed by me, you must eat all the content of the handkerchief." The king's son, who had become frightened so much, obeyed her order and ate all the dungs of donkey. After a while, he became well a little and went to the porch. The tailor's daughter was sitting in the garden as always cutting vegetables. The king's son said: "O, daughter of the tailor! How much are the vegetables in the garden?" The daughter of the tailor lifted her head and answered: "O, the son of the king! O, the prince! How much is star in the sky?" The son of the king said: "O the daughter of the tailor! What about the exchange of sweet paste and ring?" The daughter of the tailor answered: "O the son of the king, O the prince, what about the exchange of death and eating dung?" The king's son could not answer her. So he went home and said his father: "The tailor has daughter but he is hiding her from you. You should take her for me." The king ordered to search the house of the tailor. The soldiers went and searched all the corners of the house, but did not find the girl. The went back and said: "O king! We did not find the girl. But we saw a pumpkin on the shelf." The king said: "Most probably just this pumpkin is the guilty. Fetch it." They went and brought back the pumpkin. The king' son cut the pumpkin with his sword and the girl came out of it. The boy got happy. The tailor and his wife got happy too due to getting a child at last.
The king ordered to celebrate seven days and seven nights. They ignited candles and fired woods in the mountains and performed wedding.
