Long Island Cheese Squash (C. moschata) This heirloom dates well back to the early 1800's and has significant East Coast historic value. Well known as a the 'great pie squash' by people in New York and New Jersey, it was named for its likeness to a wheel of cheese. Flattened, ribbed, tan-coloured pumpkins average 6-12 pounds. Sweet deep orange flesh with similar texture to spaghetti squash. Easy to grow and stores very well. A favourite for all on our farm!
