Anyone know what I should look for in available LA pumpkin stock for recipe calling for "cheese pumpkin"? Thanks.

  1. cindarella pumpkin is close. basically a sweet baking pumpkin, not a jack o lantern.

    1. I am regionally separated but on NY's Long Island's east end, the Bonackers (early residents) used only cheese pumpkins I am told. And when we lived there we would seek them out for any pumpking recipe and never found it to be anything but improved. Just a history insert...

      1. Fairytale pumpkins are good sub.
