Product Features

Blue Hubbard Winter Squash - Heirloom Squash ! Blue Hubbard Winter Squash New England strain (100 days) Introduced in 1909 by Gregory as Symmes Blue Hubbard, in honor of S.S. Symmes, a gardener who worked for his company for many years. Gregory considered it his best introduction, praising its flavor, productivity and storage qualities. The 1917 Gregory catalog said "close your eyes...and you would think you were eating cake." Bright yellow-orange dry sweet flesh. Each squash will feed a large family because fruits average 15-20 lb, sometimes exceeding 30 or 40 lb. Vines crawl all over the garden. Traditional New England Thanksgiving favorite. Prized also for its large white sweet seeds-delicious roasted. Blue Hubbard has proven effective as a perimeter trap crop for striped cucumber beetles. Completely encircle a main crop of other cucurbits with Hubbard vines, concentrating the pests in the border areas.
