100 days. The Jarrahdale pumpkin may look like it escaped from a movie set, but it’s actually an Australian heirloom. Its silvery bluish-grey color and drum shape with deep ribbing make it perfect for ornamental autumn displays. Carve it or bake it like any other squash. Its golden to orange colored flesh is nutty, sweet, and stringless. 6 to 12 pound fruits with long storage capability.

When to sow outside: RECOMMENDED. 2 to 4 weeks after average last frost and when soil temperatures have risen above 60°F.

When to start inside: Not recommended except in very short growing seasons, 3 to 4 weeks before average last frost. Sow in pulp pots that can be planted directly in the ground. Transplant when plants have 2 sets of true leaves.

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 will rot. Brush off any dirt or leaves. Cure in a sunny window or porch at 75-80°F for 1-2 weeks before eating or storage. Do not allow harvested fruit to get wet.
