richnz Time to #harvest the #bigone. This I think is a #banana #pumpkin or if they cross it might once have been a #bluehubbard. Grown from our last years seed. 2d

richnz Brave #timothytaranaki #NewZealand’s native animals evolved during 80 million years of isolation without any mammalian predators. Mustelids are a major predator of our unique native birds. Some birds – like the kiwi – have lost the ability to fly. This makes them extremely vulnerable to predators.
Stoats are the main reason that mainland kiwi populations are declining. Even in low numbers, stoats can have a huge impact on kiwi survival and trapping is not always reducing numbers enough to protect young kiwi.
Stoats are also expert tree climbers. Birds which
nest in tree holes such as the mohua/yellowhead are extremely vulnerable...and our chickens....Stoats will take the eggs, and kill the chicks and the mother sitting on the nest.#kiwigarden

  •   mauimina How does this variety taste @richnz 3d
  •   richnz @mauimina I'm pretty sure it is a banana pumpkin. Last year I purchased blue Hubbard seeds and had a few of this sort in the batch! I kept the seed and this year I have this one and about 6 others! Last yer it was fine, tasted great... Haven't tried this years yet! 3d
