Agronomist and Daintree Fresh Director, Shaun Jackson, is the man behind this incredible pumpkin. His mission was to develop a pumpkin that was not only a nutritional ‘superfood’, but a vegetable that is simple to cook and that makes a delicious addition to any meal. After many years of natural breeding, Shaun developed Orange Glow pumpkins that we’re absolutely loving!
The rich, red volcanic soils where this pumpkin is grown allows for the crops to be farmed in the cleanest and greenest way possible. The sunny climate creates perfect growing conditions and allows for the crops to be grown in the most sustainable methods possible. Plus, with such red and fertile volcanic soil, it’s no wonder these pumpkins are so orange!
