Canada Crookneck (pre 1820)

A very old heirloom more than likely grown by the Iroquois Indians. It was not introduced commercially until 1834 by Boston seedsman Charles H. Hovey, but certainly grown prior to that time for a number of years. The fruit is up to 12 inches in length and 4-6" at the base and the skin is a dull yellow that fades in storage. If cured properly, the fruit stores well. The flesh is of excellent quality and a deep gold orange color. This squash is excellent baked but I have also used the very young fruit raw in salads. Very drought tolerant. EXTREMELY RARE. (10 seeds /pkt.)

Long Island Cheese Pumpkin

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.
