Put some Jarradale seeds in. 3 lots, the first plot is being attacked but
the other 2 are not. Same strip but about 2 & 4 metres away. Will be
interested if they breed true as seed from commercial crop.

I don't see F1 pumpkin seeds being offered by seed vendors, they seem to
have planty of vigour without that. So my guess is that they will breed
true.

Don't know the leaves show evidence of some chomping but no activity when I
looked. Will check in the AM.
