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

Review:

I grew these at my brother's house since I have a vine borer problem on my property. Together we had a huge pumpkin patch! Turns out he has vine borers too. And lots of weeds. I planted a bunch of other varieties that didn't make it (my hull-less varieties, sniff sniiff), but I got lots of Waltham Butternut, which is notorious for being left alone by vine borers, and lots of Long Island Cheese! I planted two hills I think and had way more than we could eat, combined with the butternut, so my brother sold the rest at his road side stand. Just ate one the other day (it's mid-Feb - they store great!!). The flavor is good...I think I like butternut better, but they are also a good addition to fruit smoothies (my kids don't notice me sneaking it into their ice pops!). They also look great on the porch for autumn decoration. I would definitely recommend!

Review:

I grew these pumpkins for the first time this year, and with just two plants I've harvested more than twenty pumpkins! The flavor is wonderful! The pumpkin is very sweet and is versatile for cooking anything from soup to baked goods. I plan to make my Thanksgiving pumpkin pies with these!

Review:

A friend allows me to garden on his property. In exchange, he gets some of the produce. Recently, he was "over the moon" when I delivered a pie to him that was made from one of the Long Island Cheese squashes grown on his property! He always thought pumpkin pie was "blah"...that is until he got one made from Long Island Cheese. --WORLD OF DIFFERENCE! Creamy, smooth, and incredible flavor!

Review:

Long Island cheese squash. These are amazing to grow. We literally had the old squash left over from LAST year, threw them on the compost pile after they froze (accidentally left outside too long). Never paid any attention til all at once, squash vines growing all over the place! They came up volunteer! Now, the end of September, I have these big buggers all OVER the place. They've vined over the limb slash we stacked next to compost pile, I have these squash growing suspended in the air! Not kidding!! They are very resistant to downy mildew. They took off and are in an area of about 2000 square feet!

Review:

This plant is indestructible! I has started the plant at the end of a trellis. We were planning a permanent fence and it turned out the Long Island Squash was right in the path. One hot, dry day, I decided to move the plant which by this time had half a dozen large leaves and was probably a foot tall or more. I figured it was worth a try. Unfortunately, after moving it, I forgot to water it and when I returned it was like a deflated balloon - flat as a pancake and seemingly dead or done for. I watered it generously, included the flat, wilted leaves and then left. A couple of days later, I was surprised to see it was somewhat resurrected, and gave it more water. By the end of the season, the thing had taken over the entire area and produced at least several squashes (that I can see) and probably more hidden in the leaves which are winding between rhubarb and comfrey plants. One squash is cooking right now, and smells great.
