It is generally accepted that the name of Calabasas is derived from the Spanish calabaza meaning “pumpkin”, “squash”, or “gourd”. Some historians hold the theory that Calabasas is derived from the Chumash word calahoosa which is said to mean “where the wild geese fly.” Owing to vast presence of wild squash plants in the area, the squash theory is more prevalent among local residents. At the top of the Calabasas grade, which is east of Las Virgenes Road on the original El Camino Real, legend has it that in 1824, a Basque rancher from Oxnard spilled a wagonload of pumpkins on the road en route to Los Angeles. The following spring, hundreds of pumpkin seeds sprouted alongside the road. The area was named Las Calabasas—the place where the pumpkins fell.
