Description

Grow a garden filled with Blue Jarrahdale Pumpkins, from freshly harvested Cucurbita maxima seeds. Blue Jarrahdale is an heirloom that produces 10 to 14 inch 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 6 to 12 pounds each. The plants themselves will grow to a mature height of only 12 to 24 inches tall and spreads to a varying length of 10 to 15 feet 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.

Check out our Pumpkin category for a list of all of our most popular Pumpkins. You might also be interested in purchasing our “Spooky Mixture” for a blend of all sorts of different pumpkins. Included are a favorites such as “small sugar” and the famous “Jack O’ Lantern” as well. Because Pumpkins are annual plants, they will grow for one season, bearing fruit near the end of it’s life and will later die with the first frost.

Sowing The Seed

Pumpkins are best established directly outdoors in the summer. Be sure to select a large enough area for the plants to grow and vine outwards. Remove all unwanted plant life from your sowing area, turning the dirt, or replacing the dirt with a fresh soil. Create mounds of dirt or “hills” roughly 18 to 24 inches wide and at least 8 inches high. Sow 4 seeds per mound at a depth of 1 inch under topsoil. (See "Germination & Growth" for spacing and other growth habits)

Growing Conditions

Pumpkins enjoy the heat of summer and will thrive in temperatures that are above 75F. The soil should be rich in organic matter, but will also need to be well drained. To improve drainage, it is recommended to add a light compost to any hard, compacted soil in the sowing area. This will prevent the roots from rotting. Water the seeds daily with a mild setting so that the seeds and seedlings are kept moist until germination occurs.

Germination & Growth

Blue Jarrahdale Pumpkin seeds will begin to sprout open in roughly 7 to 14 days after sowing. The plants will grow to a mature height of 1 to 2 feet tall and 10 to 15 feet long. These plants will need a large area to grow outwards and can be spaced by hills or mounds of dirt, rather than rows. As explained above mounds should be 18 to 24 inches wide and at least 8 inches tall. Space each mound at least 6 to 8 feet apart from one another. When sprouts become visible, direct the vines outwards towards areas that do not contain other plant life.

Harvesting Blue Jarrahdale Pumpkins

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.
