Blue pumpkins are available in the fall.
There are numerous varieties of blue pumpkins such as: Queensland Blue, Australian Blue, Jarrahdale, Blue Doll, and Blue Moon
Blue pumpkins tend to have deep, rounded ridges running from top to bottom. The skin ranges in color from dusky blue to blue-green rind with a striking deep, orange flesh and a mild sweet flavor.
Blue pumpkins can be used as you would any fresh pumpkin. Their flavor lends itself well to purees, soups and pie filling. Alternately you can use roasted pieces in risottos, tossed with vegetables and sausage, or cooled in a salad.
An Australian heirloom, Blue pumpkins typically weigh six to ten pounds and average two or three deeply ribbed pumpkins per vine. Pumpkins grow well in full sun and prefer warm, moderately moist summers. Do not harvest pumpkins until they reach their appropriate size and turn the color of their particular variety.
