These grew out of my compost and I know we have never had seedless pumpkin before? Well it all started with the seeds really.

The flavour, keeping quality and texture are more a result of growing conditions than being kept. Even using commercial seedlings, organic growers turn out much more tender and flavoursome crops.
Hi Valerie, mine were nearly seedless as well. But taste was divine!! It was so smooth and creamy and sweet - not stringy at all like store bought. I'm wondering if the stringiness indicate how long it's been stored for? Mine was eaten 1 week after I picked it.
Curious. It does look like good eating though.
Mine all grow from Kent seeds in the compost - I tend to get seeds though. I looks like a good pumpkin.
Once I grew a Jap/Buttnernut cross accidentally from the compost. The progeny were seedless. 'Cept yours look like proper Qld Blues. You can see the embryo seeds in the piece on the left - or at least the places where they would have been.
There's no way I know of to produce Pumpkins vegetatively similar to e.g. Bananas who have embryo seeds. So it's not a way forward for Pumpkins.
Very interesting.. Have you tasted these yet and how does it taste.
