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? Sweet, nutty flavor.

What are the cons? None

Review:

This morning I cut up and baked a Blue Hubbard and a Golden Hubbard on sheet pans in the oven (350 degrees for 1 1/2 hours). I wanted to see if there was any flavor difference since both were Hubbards and I wanted to use one of them for Thanksgiving Dinner this coming Thursday. The Blue Hubbard's flesh baked to a darker color (color of light pumpkin pie) and it had a strong "squash" flavor. The sweetness and the nuttiness of the Blue Hubbard was noticeable. The Golden Hubbard baked to a much brighter orange color and it also had a strong "squash" flavor. However, I couldn't detect nuttiness or sweetness in it. But the flavor was strong and it was still absolutely delicious. I tried both types without and then with butter... and every time the Blue Hubbard won my "taste tests" since I love natural sweetness in my squashes.

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.
