My styrian's were all in the 10lb size, I planted late. Quantity of seeds were equivalent to a normal pumpkin. I want to harvest enough to press oil from the seeds eventually. I was told that the flesh would be bland but I didn't think so. I didn't have enough to see how well the stored. I understand that it is from Austria so it should do well in my area, but I haven't done any research to confirm that. 90 days to maturity.
Our inability to change everything should not stop us from changing what we can.
Cucurbita pepo convarietas citrullinina – varietas styriaca this is how its called. and this is how looks like:
i think it comes from austria,and its not so new. also its not hybrid i think. you can eat flesh, its just like most of other edible pumkins. also its easy to make oil from seed. you can make lot of money from this, oil is very expencive.

Yeah I can confirm this, at least for Butternut Waltham, which I grew last year. It had loads of really small seeds. I roasted them with a little olive oil and a salt-herbal mix, you've never tasted such a delicacy!
