(C. maxima) 110 days 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? Even old seed germinates

Review:

Ok, I blew it this season. I was planning to buy my Blue Hubbard seeds from Baker Creek when I bought a large blue hubbard squash at a local garden center. Since that squash was chock full of seeds, I rubbed my hands gleefully together and decided to grow THOSE seeds instead. (free seed! Yippee). Well, I'm not "yippee-ing" now. I must have planted 20 of those seeds and have 3 that actually germinated. The Golden Hubbard that I also bought at that same local garden center also has bad seed with only 4 of them actually germinating and are now growing. So much for my dream this year of a yard full of my favorite winter squashes! :-( On the up side, I had bought Jonathan White Cushaw squash from Bakers' Creek a few years ago. I never got around to planting them but decided to try them out this year. EVERY single one of those seeds germinated, even though they are a few years old. I am now making my wish list for next year's garden. ALL seeds will come from Baker Creek!

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 !
