110 days (C. maxima) Huge, teardrop-shaped fruit weigh 15-40 lbs and have sweet, fine-grained, golden flesh. Great for baking, pies, and soup. The hard, blue-gray shell helps these keep for long periods in storage. Gregory Seed Company introduced this fine New England variety in 1909, and Mr. Gregory considered this his best introduction.

What are the pros? huge vines

What are the cons? some leaves dying off

Review:

first time growing these. they are huge, almost growing several inches overnight. this is only the second year that I am able to keep the squash plants alive because of the squash vine borer. I came up with a neat little trick and only requires a tiny amount of Spinosad and wood ash. So I am very happy with the results

What are the pros? Prolific and big .

What are the cons? Prefer a sweeter flesh .

Review:

Successfully grew these in cool climate , southern New Zealand . They flowered early , and set fruit easily . We got 1 or 2 big blue pumpkins on each vine . A vigorous plant . They got aphid infestations early on , but ladybird larvae cleaned them up . No sprays needed . Fruit dried off quickly in autumn , 8 - 15 kgs each . Good for roasting , soups , casseroles . Best if you quarter them and gift 3 pieces to neighbours !

What are the pros? flavor

What are the cons? no complaints

Review:

I read someplace to drop your hubbard squash on concrete(driveway, sidewalk) and it would break up and would be easier to use then. I tried it and it worked great.

Review:

These grew like gangbusters! One even went up the side of the screened porch where I had to dislodge it, putting it back on the ground. Then another vine tried to climb into the Maple tree so I had to redirect that vine, also. The vines seemed to grow another foot each time I looked at them. Provided lots of fun and interest. The squashes were huge, weighing at least 20 lbs each with each vine producing about 2 squashes. In my opinion, these are some of the best squashes to use for pies, puddings, savory squash soup, etc. It took a large knife and a hammer to crack the shells, cutting them open. Then I cleaned out the pieces and baked them. (Reserve seeds for growing next year or fry/bake them for eating). If you mash butter, brown sugar, a tiny drop of vanilla and a dusting of cinnamon into the cooked pulp, you'll think you are in Heaven.
