Hubbard Blue Squash
110 days. Blue Hubbard Squash was introduced in 1909 as Symmes Blue Hubbard Squash by James J. H. Gregory & Son seed company. It was first listed in their 1910 Retail Catalogue. JJH said of the Blue Hubbard, “Thick meated, fine-grained, dry and very sweet; close your eyes while eating and you would think you were eating cake.”
Hubbard Blue Squash is a soft grey-green to deep green on the outside, the sweet orange flesh is an amazing keeper and great for pies! If you’d like a winter treat, bake one of these with butter salt/ pepper and serve in slices. Fruits can weigh up to 15 lbs!
Contains 15 heirloom seeds
Blue Hubbard happens to also be the favorite of cucumber beetles. Why is this important? Use it as a trap crop! Plant blue hubbard first on your gardens borders and "trap" all the cucumber beetles in their favorite squash.
Hubbard Blue Squash is an excellent keeper lasting up to 5 months in a root cellar or cool closet.
