I know we just finished the growing season, but I am always on the lookout for new things to grow next year.
Take a look at this new pumpkin variety that is new for 2008! It’s called Pumpkin ‘Jarrahdale’ (Cucurbita maxima).
It has a unique bluish-gray fruit, which grows up to 6 to 12 pounds (7 to 5.5 kgs), that is excellent for fall dÃ©cor and Halloween.
Also making it different, is its golden to orange-colored flesh, that is sweet, nutty, and stringless, making it great for baking. This is nice, because many ornamental or decorative pumpkins are not so good tasting, but this one is.
Harvest in 100 days from seed. Seeds are available at: Botanical Interests
Overall this seems to be a very versatile pumpkin and I am going to try it out next year, I hope you do to!
