Mystery pumpkin

Another result of my whacking in seeds thinking i’ll remember, but I never do. I discovered this stalwart at the property in an abandoned garden bed, along with two massive bright yellow marrows. I *think* it’s a Blue Banana Jumbo which looks like it’s now sold out (I couldn’t resist buying something called that………..and yes I bought the Pink too).



It took the husband about five minutes and risking chopping his arm off to get it in half-it would be a great keeper. It was crap roasted, dry and floury, but made pretty good soup if I do say so myself.
