Long Island Cheese - when to harvest
I posted this same message in the Vegetable Forum before I realized there was this specialized one. We are growing Long Island Cheese baking pumpkins for the first time. Our first and largest fruit turned mushy on the vine after a few days of appearing ripe. I harvested the next four when they had a slight tinge of green on one side, and they appear to be curing fine. I have several more still on the vines. What's the best time to harvest this pumpkin?
