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 cons? large vines
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!

What are the pros? impossible to kill
What are the cons? takes up a lot of space
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!
