SHARAN West's father was born in Slovenia, where he was part of their rural pumpkin industry. He moved to Australia and changed his name from Garbjas to West, John West, and started growing the Styrian variety of pumpkin. It produces a seed without a hard hull and is perfect for pressing for its delicious oil. The seeds, roasted, are brilliant on salads or blended with roasted tomato to make a dip. You can buy them from their new farm-gate shop, Australian Pumpkin Seed Company, which opened on Australia Day this year. 5061 Great Alpine Road, Ovens, 5752 1199, Fri to Tues 8.30am-5pm, pumpkinseed.net.au
