7 REASONS TO GROW JARRAHDALE PUMPKINS!

1. THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!
Just look at them! Who doesn’t love a blue pumpkin? They are a gorgeous blue-green-greyish colour. They contrast beautifully with the traditional orange!

2. THEY ARE A GREAT INVESTMENT!
If you are trying to get a lot of bang for your buck in the food department, you need to grow these. If cured correctly, (let sit in the sun for 7-10 days after harvesting, which allows the skin to harden) they can last up to 12 months in a cool dark place in your home like a closet or unheated room, even under a bed.

On average, mine have weighed about 7KGS each, some get much larger than that even! That is easy peasy long lasting, whole, real, healthy food that is inexpensive, so they are great for the budget. Especially if you grow them yourself!

3. THEY CAN MAKE YOU SOME MONEY OR HAPPY RELLIES/FRIENDS/NEIGHBOURS!
If you sell at a farmer’s market or have a farm stand at the end of your driveway, you can bet these will be top sellers. Grow some for you, and grow some to sell! Or just share with your friends and family.

4. THEY TASTE DELICIOUS: HOMEMADE PUMPKIN ANYTHING!!!
These are my absolute favourite pumpkin for eating. It used to be Butternut Squash, but I think these are even better and are often much larger than an average Butternut, so more bang for your buck.

Instead of grabbing for that can of pumpkin that most buy at the grocery store, grow it yourself! By putting some in the freezer that has already been cooked, it than becomes easy to use in everything from pumpkin curry to pumpkin pie and everything in between!

5. THEY HAVE AN AMAZING TEXTURE!
These are not stringy at all, like many pumpkins. They are also super dense, and not watery. Almost creamy. Perfect in my opinion. Almost like lump-free mashed potatoes.

6. PUMPKINS ARE SUPER HEALTHY!
Everyone should eat more pumpkins, as they are easy to grow, you get a LOT of food from them, and they are super nutritious. They are super high in beta-carotene, fibre, vitamin A & C and potassium. Use them in smoothies, or cut them up in chunks and roast them and serve as a side for dinner. Use them in curries or soups. Or, roast them, and use the leftovers to top your salad for lunch the next day.

7. THEY ARE SUPER EASY TO GROW!!!
Winter squash and pumpkins are one of the things I always recommend people grow when they are just starting out with vegetable gardening. All they really need is some space, a sunny location, and some good fertile well-draining soil. If you are looking into becoming a more self-sustainable gardener, instead of just having a hobby vegetable garden, these Blue Jarrahdale pumpkins are one food you should definitely have in your garden. Easy to grow and provides a LOT of nutritious food! And they store for a long time without any effort.

The Jarrahdale pumpkin is native to Australia and a cross between Blue Hubbard and the Cinderella pumpkin. The skin of the Jarrahdale is what makes it so distinctive, with the hard grayish rind contrasted against the thick orange inner flesh. It cuts easily, and has orange, sweet-tasting flesh.
