I'm at work and can't stay on the site long. If you click on the rareseeds.com site link I posted earlier you can look at dozens. Three C. Moschatas that come to mind are Musquee de Provence, Long Islance Cheese and Texas Indian Moschata. I am not as familiar with the maximas because they don't grow very well down here.

So a "cheese pumpkin" is probably OK for B's?

I'm assuming that the thing the farmer at the farmer's market  simply called a "cheese pumpkin", being both grown and sold on Long Island, is what you call a  "Long Island Cheese pumpkin."

In my personal opinion yes. They should be between 6 and 10 lbs in size, a kind of a buff or beige color like a butternut, and have a six sided solid stem similar to a butternut squash. They are a bit stringier than a butternut but just whizzing it up in a food processor takes care of that. Of course one of the moderators may disagree with me and if they have tested a C. moschata pumpkin I'll agree with them. Pictures are available on the rareseeds.com website.
