What are the pros? The tastiest of all squash!
What are the cons? Sensitive vines
I grew this squash with pumpkin pie in mind, and I'm so happy I did. It made the most velvety smooth, delicious pie I've ever had. I can't wait to grow it again!
These vines are susceptible to vine borers, and the stems will break free from the fruit if jostled too much. Out of three plants, two were killed by borers, and the one vine produced two fruit. Of those two fruit, only one grew to maturity. It was one of my first winter squash to mature. I kept it in storage for a month or two before cooking it up for Thanksgiving. I felt bad eating it because it's such a beautiful squash, but the flavor is too exquisite to leave for decoration. One pumpkin should make 3-4 pies at least.

What are the pros? Strong plants, nice color
What are the cons? none
Blue Hubbards are an easy-to-grow squash. They are very hardy and have greater resistance to pests and diseases than other winter squash varieties. The first year I grew these the plants survived being washed over by a flood. The second year, they survived a freak late-frost in May!

What are the pros? they are indestructable
What are the cons? Apparently you cant kill them
If a cast out squash into a firepit can survive... Like ours did.. You can eat healthy without trying!

Love hubbards. Easiest way to open them...drop on hard surface like cement or a good hard floor. no need for sharp tools that could cause accidents,

What are the pros? Prolific, big!
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!
