This Long Island heirloom was known as the original “Cheese Wheel.” It has smooth, heavily ribbed, buff-colored skin with a deep orange, sweet flesh. This winter squash weighs 6-10 pounds, and is considered one of the best baking varieties and is excellent in pies. It also stores well.
Direct sow seeds in hills or rows after the last spring frost; for hills, sow 6-8 seeds per 12”-wide hill, then thin to the best 3-4 plants per hill. To grow in a shorter season, start indoors 3-4 weeks before last frost. Winter squash prefer fertile soil. Approximately 16 seeds per packet.
