Jarrahdale Pumpkin

    8 responses

Brendan starts with ...
A Jarrahdale pumpkin I just picked. Weighed a tad over 9kgs, looks like a lot of pumpkin scones coming up :)
Yes it's a bit battered and bruised, but that will peel off. Fruit Flies had attacked the stem, so I had to pick it :(

Thanks MaryT & amanda, yes I'll be keeping some seeds from this one for sure.
I read somewhere MaryT, that the Jarrahdale is best roasted, I'll let you know later :-)
Good tips amanda, thank you.

I'm trying to decide which variety to try this year...I grew Jap's this season and the vines became enormous and overran everything b4 they finally started flowering...
(a late season pumpkin I was then told..)
So I only just pulled it up recently - but got more than a wheelbarrow full of pumpkins tho...
(but many were too juvenile to keep, sadly)
I'd like an earlier variety than this tho..?

Another 400kg and it would be the world record but then again you can't eat those trashy Atlantic and Pacific Giants.Brendan are they the same as Qld Blues?

With onion,garlic,bacon,chives,carrots and tomatoes along for the ride,tumeric,cumin,pepper to taste and finished with sour cream or yoghurt a barrell of soup could be born.

Hi amanda & Mike, to help mine flower, I gave them a good dose of sulphate of potash, plus lots of wood ash. Nothing wrong with Jap pumpkins amanda. Funny thing, I was talking to a mate today, and he grew a Jap nearly 7kg! :-)

Mike I don't think they're as good as the Qld Blue (or Jap), but I haven't cut it yet. I think the Jarrahdale's flesh is orange coloured, and is best for baking? Don't forget to add a large spud to your pumpkin soup! Makes it! What was the weight of the record one?

They are bigger than what I remember crossing the 1000kg mark. Brendan yes I forgot about the spud so it was a half baked answer.
