Perfect for autumn displays, this Australian favorite's silvery bluish-grey color and drum shape with deep ribbing make it almost too beautiful to be real. Carve it or bake it like any other squash. The golden to orange colored flesh is nutty, sweet, and stringless. 6–12 pound fruits with long storage capability.

Harvesting: Harvest pumpkins before the first fall frost, and when foliage has begun to dry out. Cut stem with a knife, leaving 3"–4" of stem on the pumpkin. Do not hold the pumpkin by the stem; if stem attachment gets broken, or any part of the pumpkin bruises, the pumpkin may rot. Brush off any dirt or leaves. Ideally, cure at 80°-85°F and 80–85% humidity or a warm, sunny spot with good air circulation for 1 to 2 weeks before eating or storage. Do not allow harvested fruit to get wet.

Best pumpkin

Besides its unique color, 1 pumpkin yields enough to can or freeze for your baking, cooking pleasure. It's the only one I grow.

Beyond my wildest expectations

I found a packet of Jarrahdale seeds in my seed drawer that was packed for 2017, so I didn't have high hopes. I planted three seeds in a peat pot indoors and transplanted them outside when they were about 3" tall in one hill. The vines grew like crazy, taking over my front and side yard. They would have grown into the street (about 35') had I not tipped the plants at the edge of the yard. They even grew about 15' up into a tree. One pumpkin grew in the tree and hung there until I cut it down. I harvested about 30 pumpkins, enough to give away and still have plenty to keep. The skin is beautiful; the flesh is bright orange and very sweet. I bake, puree and freeze the pumpkin. I'm sold on Jarrahdale pumpkins! Why grow any other pumpkin?

Beautiful and unique pumpkins with really superb flavor. Plan plenty of room for them to sprawl.

These did so well in my garden - direct sowed in early June (zone 4B), and they are STILL developing new fruit in mid-September. I've already taken 12 off the vine, varying in sizes and all gorgeous shades of blue. These will always have a home in my garden!
