Pumpkin Mystery Mixture Cucurbita Species Seeds
10+ seeds from a HUGE variety of pumpkins!
First of all a bit of an explanation.
I totally stuffed up a while ago, having a bit of an issue with one of our Cucurbita crossing up.
So, to stop that ever happening again, I decided that I would get real serious, and hand pollinate each and every flower every morning, then peg or tie the flower shut label and number it and keep a log, and only save seed from the ones I had hand pollinated.
Thats a great theory, but I want to grow at least 30 different pumpkins all at once, and it turns out I am far too lazy for all that nonsense…
SO, Here it is.
I buy/trade/barter/collect every type of weird and wonderful pumpkin I can get my hands on, and I grow them.
Then I harvest them and sell them at the stall, eat heaps of them in a million different ways, and of course collect a handful of seed from each of the grooviest types.
I dry them, and when I have at least 20types, I add an equal amount of each to a large bowl, mix it up and bag them.
At least 10 seeds per pack, just like the pictures of a very wide range of fruiting forms.
Most likely you will get 5 or so different varieties, and you even may get an entirely new breed altogether, as the seeds you receive, may all have crossed with Gramma, Kabocha, Butternut, JAP, Amir, Bugle, Pepo mix, Acorn, Sugar pie, Pink Banana, Blue Banana, Spookie White, Delicata, Qld Blue, Futsu Black, or a million other cool types somewhere along the lines.
Bound to be cool though, and who doesn’t like a suprise?
Grown by us organically, no nasties, no chems, no problems!!!
P.S. I can’t sell “mixed seeds” to WA or TAS as below. Some overseas quarantine departments do not allow “mixtures of seeds” either, so please be aware of that, and look into it before buying.
