Qld Blue pumpkin (special strain)

Qld blue pumpkin is medium-sized which has the blossom and stem ends flattened. It is deeply ribbed, hard slate grey skin with a yellow-orange flesh.

This variety is favoured for use in scones. Its drier texture lends itself to baking and boiling and stores well for up to 6 months or longer. I generally get two to three pumpkins off a vine a year.

When to Sow Germinates when soil temp >20C. Sow direct when a week of sunny weather is forecast. To help lay black plastic down, cut an X and plant into that. Note can be quite slow to germinate at low temperatures so pick a good week of higher temperatures.

Cool Climate: mid OCT – mid DEC (heat mat aides germination)

Temperate: SEP – DEC

Sub – Tropical: AUG – MAR

Tropical: FEB – SEP

Arid: AUG – MAR

Spacing 1 metre (provide lots of water)
