(C. maxima) 110 days Popular in Australia, this heirloom was introduced to the U.S. in 1932. Beautiful blue turban-shaped 10-20 lb. fruit, deeply ribbed. Very fine, deep golden flesh that is sweet and fine flavored. A good keeper.

What are the pros? Space, the more the better

What are the cons? Not being watered in evening

Review:

I am a teacher, one of my students planted 4 QB pumpkins in 1997, it was the perfect pumpkin season. He harvested 36 pumpkins that season. He managed to fill his Dad's car twice full to the roof to take home. This is of course a rare occurrence, but worth mentioning. I get about 8 decent pumpkins from each vine on average. What to do with them: Bake them with skin on, with two full garlic heads. Cool and then skin them and squeeze out the garlic. Add them to chicken stock and puree. This is magic pumpkin soup. Serve it with a small scoop of sour cream and hot buttered bread rolls.Yum!

Review:

These grew very well during a ridiculously (and record breaking) hot and dry summer in the Sierra Nevada Foothills in Northern California. Reasonable sized fruits (3-5 lbs) were not as blue or shiny as the picture, but well worth the space. I harvested some early, when the plants were still green but the shells were hard, and they are storing well, so far, and the vines set a second crop. These plants were less bothered by the aphids than the butternuts and kabochas. The best feature is the flavor - you can't beat it. Dense flesh and very few seeds compared to many others. The seeds are a bit too fibrous to make good eating, though.

Review:

In my zone 9 So. Cal garden, I usually plant winter squashes in May--so that's when I sowed Queensland Blue last spring. QB was very vigorous and productive in the early summer , but by July when the temps were in the 80s it was wilting all day and perking up again at night. By the end of that month the temps got into the 90s and several of my developing squashes aborted. No amount of watering could save them. Only two survived out of about 14 on 3 vines. But those two were delicious, excellent keepers-one is still storing on my kitchen cabinet in the following May.If I try QB again, I will sow the seeds around April 1st so that more of the squashes have a chance to make it to harvest time.

Review:

I grew QB for the first time in 2008. It was a vigorous vine, so needs lots of space to run. I love the look of the squash and the contrast between the blue skin and the brilliant orange flesh is gorgeous. I used it for pumpkin bread. I sent seeds to a piebaking friend who was impressed with it in 2009.
