We think Long Island Cheese is kind of an oddball in the pumpkin patch. It's claim to fame? Storage! After all the other pumpkins have decomposed into a puddle, Long Island Cheese will still be going strong. It's colour, shall we say, is plain. It has the least flavour, and possibly the worst texture of all the pumpkins. But we like it anyway, and we'll continue to grow it, just because it is different. Being different is a good thing!
