Do Pumpkin Seeds Go Bad?
As pumpkin seeds contain natural oils, they can go rancid if not stored properly. You also need to be aware of that when in shell, pumpkin seeds store much longer. However, they are so difficult to shell by hand that an extra few months of shelf life are not enough to offset this major disadvantage.

They can be frozen to extend their shelf life almost indefinitely. Although, this might not be necessary as they last for very long when kept in a cool dry place, so you can buy pumpkin seeds in bulk and enjoy them whenever you please.
