(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.

Review:

My Blue Hubbard's where big from the beginning. They where the biggest and the fastest out of all my indoor starts. This year I won't start them indoors because I don't think they need it. Once they got there legs they really took off! I had big beautiful Blue Hubbard's all through the fall. Tasty in curry soups we are making this winter (we have several squash still in storage and they are doing great) Best of all it was my first time saving seeds from winter squash, so they will be in the garden next year as well. Tasty squash, fun shape and color. I highly recommend it and have no complaints!

What are the pros? impossible to kill

What are the cons? takes up a lot of space

Review:

This is my first year with a "proper" garden. Though I'd heard rumors that summer squash will take over your garden, that didn't translate in my brain to winter squash. I planted three seeds, all three germinated, and began growing with vigor. I've literally done nothing but water them, I was gone for three weeks and the weeds took over a lot of my garden, but not the squash. They survived and continued to thrive after a severe hail storm. I have about 15 gourds just about ready to harvest. These squash seem pretty indestructible! Great for a novice gardener like myself, but next year they're getting their own patch so they don't take over my peas and green beans again!

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.
