Why is pumpkin bitter

I tried making pumpkin pie from a sugar pumpkin from whole foods, but the flesh was very bitter after roasting. Was it the pumpkin or something I did?

Most likely it was the pumpkin; not anything you did.Pumpkin flavor isn't always consistent;

I find that canned pumpkin is superior in pie. It's more consistent in flavor and smoother.
You can get un-spiced canned pumpkin and put your attention into the spices and the crust.
