Default Long Pie pumpkin

Has anyone else grown Long Pie pumpkins? We discovered them last year. They are low-yield but store great, and are the best pie pumpkin we have ever grown. We are limited in what we can grow here due to our short season, but we tried Long Pie last year (one plant) and only got one pumpkin. It was stored on the shelf and brought in in April of this year. It had a creamy texture and a wonderful taste. We grew two plants this year, and got 5 fruit from the 2 plants. They were picked green, and are just now turning orange. We may use them for Christmas this year.

I would recommend them to anyone in a short-season area.

Our season is not short by any stretch of the imagination, but your description of the product makes me want to try raising a few and try them ourselves.

From your description they should make a fabulous pumpkin pie.
