Queensland Blue
Cucurbita maxima

115 days — The fruits mature to a beautiful bluish, grey-green color and although they can reach twenty pounds in weight, typically average in the ten to twelve pound range. Most of the fruits are a rounded, turban shape with thick skin, deep ribbing, and sweet orange flesh that is wonderful for baking, soups, pies, cakes and muffins.

The vines are vigorous, six to eight feet long, and need a lot of room to spread out. Plant in hills, two to three feet apart in rows spaced four feet apart. They require full sun and need moderate watering.

This Australian heirloom was first introduced into the United States in 1932. Each packet contains four grams, which is approximately 14 to 16 seeds.
The flavor of this pumpkin is amazing!
I didn't have much luck with the variety. I only had one vine make it to maturity, thanks to goats not the vines themselves. That vine had three pumpkins. Two were quite small, the third was good sized. I know other folks who have had better results. However the flavor of this pumpkin is amazing! I will defiantly try growing it again someday!
