Pumpkin – Long Island Cheese ORGANIC

Cucurbita moshcata

This heirloom and prized Art of Taste pumpkin has had a long history of being a favorite—and for good reason. Large ribbed pumpkins are beautiful and long keepers. The sweet and finely grained meat can be used in an array of recipes. Vigorous vines with selection for disease resistance.

Suggested Planting Requirements: Pumpkins can be easily started from seeds indoors or directly planted. If starting indoors, plant one seed per cell to avoid unnecessary waste from thinning. If you are planting directly in the ground, you can plant 2-3 seeds per mound and thin to the strongest one. Pumpkins grow best in soils above 50 degrees. Use plastic mulches to warm soil if needed. Pumpkins prefer loam or sandy soil high in organic matter to hold large amounts of moisture. The plants require heavy and consistent watering for the best development. Preferred soil pH is between 6.0 and 7.0.

Growing Recommendations: Allow proper spacing of pumpkins for disease control and good fruit development. The vines can sprawl for several feet. If you are a container grower, allow for the vine to grow out of the container and into an area that is not a walkway. Do not overhead water as this can cause mildew and mold issues. To prevent rotting of individual fruits, place a board or piece of plastic under each fruit. As with most cucurbits, mounding provides an optimal growing area.

Harvesting & Storage: For immediate use, harvest when the skin loses its sheen. At this stage, these sweet little pumpkins are great for baking recipes. Cut the fruit from the vine, leaving 4″-6″ of the stem. Cure for storage by setting in a warm, dry location for 1-2 weeks. They can be stored for several months. The meat can be cooked and processed to your liking and then frozen if needed.
