C. maxima. Not well known today, these HEIRLOOM Pink Banana Jumbo pumpkin seeds have been around for over 100 years. The hard, smooth, deep-pink skin covers a solid, fibreless flesh that makes beautiful pies. Pick when less than 80cm (30″) for eating, or grow to the full 75 lb size, over 120cm (48″) long. This pumpkin has a vining habit, and plants get big, so provide lots of room. You’ll be rewarded with two to three spectacular oddball pumpkins per plant. These are terrific storage pumpkins, and will last all winter if kept in a cool, dark place. Give the outside of the skins a quick rinse with a diluted solution of water with a few drops of bleach. This will kill off any bacteria, and increase the shelf life of these special fruits.
Matures in 105 days. (Open-pollinated seeds)
