(C. moschata) 105 days A longtime favorite on Long Island; very popular for pies. Flat, lightly ribbed fruit look like a wheel of cheese with buff colored skin. A very good keeper of excellent quality; 6-10 lbs. each; a beautiful heirloom variety.

What are the pros? Good Looking

What are the cons? Size on the smaller side

Review:

For summer of 2014 I decided to switch to heirloom pumpkins for baking and food products. I tried this variety due to the look of the pumpkin along with its outstanding flavor. I have to say that these did quite well planted with the Dickinson. The pumpkins bake and process well and are of high quality for pies, breads, soups and jams. Don't be deceived by the light buff color when they are ready to be picked as they will turn a little darker as they cure off the vine. Pick when your finger nail dents the skin, but does not puncture. I then let them lay in the yard after cutting off the vine for about a week or 2 and then wash them with one part bleach to 10 parts water and dry. They then set on porch curing till November 5. Squash bugs were the only pest issue I had, but that is something I have always had an issue with. In the end out of 4 major vines we had about 40 pounds of picked pumpkins.

Review:

We try to grow many unsusual pumpkins for Jack O'Lanterns each year for our daughter. These made the best glowing Jack O'Lanterns because the glow was so unusual. We even grew white pumpkins, expecting them to have the best glow- but no. The tan ones were the best. We got 3 pumpkins per vine at about 6# each. Very nice- will grow again this year.

Review:

Our 2012 summer was our first time growing this variety -- extremely hot and dry summer (nearly every day over 100F until September - 2nd warmest summer on record.) This squash thrived. Many of the vines were 50 feet long so give it room (altho very well-mannered vines.) Yields were huge with nearly every pumpkin full size. Fabulous cooking/baking pumpkin -- reduce sugar in recipe by at least half, maybe 2/3's -- very sweet pumpkin. Bakes a very orange color, nice texture without using a food mill. Long Island Cheese is certainly one of best pie pumpkin in the world (my favorite is still Rouge Vif d'Etampes, in spite of all the handling it takes.) Easy to see why Long Island Cheese was a favorite for 150 years.If you've got room and hot summers, you're missing something if you don't grow this beauty!

Review:

This grew well here in central NY. Each vine produced three nice sized fruit. Stood up to our heat and drought this year with out a hitch. The deep orange stringless flesh has perfect satiny smooth texture and the flavor is sweet and delicious. It doesn't get much better than Long Island Cheese.
