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

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.
