Because of their squat shape and characteristic ribbing, these medium to big pumpkins resemble cheese wheels. Their stems are thin and their coloration is khaki. Baked into a pie, moderately sweet meat is frequently used. It takes 108 days for a plant to reach maturity. Long Island Cheese Pumpkin has been revered for centuries thanks to its smooth flesh and string-less interior (not to mention the high nutrient content). It's one of the oldest squashes domesticated for food, which we think speaks well for its taste and grow-ability.
