Description

Pumpkin Butternut seeds

Cucurbita moschata
Pack: 10 seeds, 10g

PUMPKIN Butternut squash has smooth textured orange flesh and an excellent nutty flavour. This prized heirloom pumpkin variety and the fruit grow up to 25cm or 2kg. Orange skin and a thick, cylindrical neck. This variety has a small seed cavity which means you can enjoy more of the lovely yellow flesh. The flavour is sweet and nutty and just delicious. Butternuts yield well and store longer than other pumpkins in cool, dry conditions (up to a year) and is excellent for baking. Ready in about 85 days after sowing. 

Care: Sow seeds outdoors when the danger of frost has passed in your area. Cover the seed lightly with soil, 2 - 3 seeds together in groups. Space giants are at least 3 m apart. For earlier Pumpkins, start indoors 2 to 3 weeks in advance of the intended date for moving the plants to the garden. Use Jiffy pots so the container and roots can be buried without disturbing the root system. Also, make sure the pot is wet when transplanting. Sow 2 seeds per pot and do not thin. Germinates best at 22 degrees C in 7 to 10 days. Pumpkins are ripe once the stem has reached a dark green colour and is starting to wither. Ample water is needed for optimum size!

Harvest pumpkins before the first autumn frost and when the foliage has begun to dry out. Cut the stem with a knife, leaving 7-10cm of stem on the pumpkin. Do not hold the pumpkin by the stem; if stem attachment gets broken or any part of the pumpkin bruises, the pumpkin may rot. Do not allow harvested fruit to get wet.

An additional $6 fee applies to cover quarantine inspection fees. All WA seed orders are subject to Quarantine WA inspection, which may result in delays beyond our control. For more information, please refer quarantine policy.

  • Shipping to Tasmania:

An additional $3 fee covers Biosecurity Tasmania paperwork—maximum 1kg per seed line item. Biosecurity Tasmania restrictions apply.

 

WA order dispatch time: 

WA orders are packed once a week on Wednesday and shipped out on Thursday. To ensure that your orders are processed and shipped out each Thursday, please place them before midnight (AEDT - Sydney time) on Tuesday. This applies no matter whether Express Post service is chosen for the order.

WA orders go to the Quarantine WA office at Perth Airport for inspection before being sent to your shipping address by the Quarantine Officers. Your tracking number will be activated once the inspection is complete, which may take up to 10 business days after we have packed and dispatched your order.

The tracking number will stay in a 'Pending' status until Quarantine Officers have inspected your shipment at Perth Airport.

Depending on the postal service you pay for the order, it will generally take an additional 1 to 5 business days for your shipment to arrive from Perth Airport to your address within WA. However, please note that delays beyond our control may occasionally occur. 

Signature on delivery: An additional $3.95 applies if you require a signature on delivery service. If you haven't requested a signature, the postie or courier driver will check for a safe place or letterbox (if it fits) to leave your item. They may take it to the Post Office or nearest collection point for mail order collection if a safe place can't be found. 

No Discount on Shipping charges:  Our special discount event means seeds are available at discounted prices. However, postage costs remain the same, i.e. there won't be any discount on the postage costs - so check out our postage rate table to find out exactly how much it will cost before you stock up on your favourites!

You shall receive an email notification with a tracking number as soon as your order has been dispatched. We dispatch ALL seed orders via Australia Post or Courier Service with a tracking for a peace of mind. 

We may use Australia Post Registered Post or Courier (Sign on delivery), which requires a signature on delivery, or you may need to present your ID to collect it.
