How to Grow
Direct sow after frost, or start under protection up to 3 weeks before (but no earlier--Long Island Cheese Pumpkins grow very quickly at this stage). Plant in well-fertilized hills of 4-8 seeds with hills spaced 3 feet apart. Thin to three plants per hill. Harvest when color is well developed and rind is hard. Cure for a week in sun and fresh air, but protect from frost. Cured squash will store all winter.
