Rouge Vif D'Etampes (pre 1883)(C. maxima)

(a.k.a. Red Etampes, Cinderella) A very old French heirloom that was first offered for sale in America by W. Atlee Burpee in 1883 but known in France in the early 1800’s. A beautiful flat pumpkin that Cinderella’s coach was modeled after. The flesh is thick and yellow and is good for pies or traditional pumpkin soup. In fact, this pumpkin was popular in Paris in the 1800’s because it made an excellent base for soups because the flavor was so mild that it didn’t take away from the other ingredients. One of the nicest things about this historic pumpkin is that it is orange when very small so unlike other pumpkins, you don’t have to wait for them to turn from green to orange; a huge advantage for farmer’s markets. A very decorative, early maturing variety. (95 days)

Long Island Cheese Pumpkin (C. moschata)

A strain of Cheese Pumpkin once popular in the New York and New Jersey regions. There were actually many different strains of Cheese Pumpkin in these regions grown by many different farmers for the pie market. The Cheese Pumpkin gets its name because it is shaped like an old fashioned wheel of cheese. Each strain differs slightly in how lobed the fruit is and the coloration of the skin and the size. The Long Island Cheese Pumpkin is flattened and buff colored with deep orange fine grained flesh. The fruit averages 5-8 pounds and keeps very well. ( I have had one sitting on my kitchen counter for over a year! ) This variety ripened later than others in Manitoba but still put out a good crop. (110 days) Low quantity.
