Pumpkin Jarrahdale 5 Seeds

Cucurbita maxima


Grow “Blue Jarrahdale” Pumpkins from fresh Cucurbita maxima seeds. Blue Jarrahdale is an heirloom that produces 30-36cm pumpkins with pale gray, almost green-blue skin. Each Pumpkin plant will produce about 3 to 5 fruits per vine & each fruit will weigh about 3-6 kg each. The plants themselves will grow to a mature height of only 30-60cm tall and spreads to a varying length of 3.5-5m long. Pumpkins are popularly used for pies and the Blue Jarrahdale Pumpkin makes a great pie with it’s stringless, orange flesh.

Pumpkins have a number of health benefits and are fairly easy to grow from fresh Pumpkin seeds. Because of it’s high content of beta-carotene (which is converted to vitamin A) pumpkins are great for improving eye sight. Other benefits of this delicious fruit include: Healthy & younger looking skin, improved immunity and strengthened immune system and weight loss. Some studies show that Pumpkins can even lower your risk of cancer as well.

Blue Jarrahdale Pumpkin seeds will begin to sprout open in roughly 7 to 14 days after sowing. These plants will need a large area to grow outwards and can be spaced by hills or mounds of dirt, rather than rows. When sprouts become visible, direct the vines outwards towards areas that do not contain other plant life.

When your vines start to establish pumpkins, be sure to place straw under the fruits to prevent them from touching the bare ground beneath, as this can cause rotting. Your Blue Jarrahdale Pumpkins will be ready for harvest in roughly 100 days after first sprouts appear. Cut the stems at least 2 to 3 inches from the actual fruits, otherwise the fruits will rot. Cut, carve and do as you please with the fruits. You can even collect seeds from the core to establish fresh plants the following year.
