(C. maxima) 90-100 days. A lovely little squash that was developed in 1953 by the U of NH; small, Hubbard-shaped fruit weighs around 6 lbs and have fine-grained, yellow-gold flesh that is sweet and of excellent quality. A great variety for marketing or small households. Semi-bush vines are easy to handle.

Loved growing these! I put one plant out in the back of the garden and lretty much neglected it all season. Harvested 6 squash and 1 additional wentnto the garden critters. Taste great and is a manageable size. They will be a part of my annual garden.

Review:

Zone 8b. This squash was a failure in the PNW. I harvested two fruit off of four vines, and the fruit was a miserable tennis ball sized thing. I grew Red Kuri Squash in the bed next to them and those squash did fabulously. Not thrilled as the vines took up a lot of space and produced nothing.

Review:

I looked forward to these from the moment I ordered them. They were the first to grow, first to set fruit. First to absolutely perish. The softball sized squash are all that's left of them. Squash bugs are obsessed with them, and cucumber beetles found my second sowing of them even under row cover. These were the only plants of 20 that received this much damage, so I guess they make a good sacrifice.

What are the pros? Productive, great size, taste

What are the cons? Big seed pocket for their size

Review:

First time that I grew these. I sell lots of hubbards, but I always hear the same thing from a lot of customers, "I'm only 1 person or that is way too big for me". So this year I was able to counter these comments by introducing the baby blue Hubbard. I now have a slew of customers coming to me for these personal sized tasty nuggets, including a lot of repeat buyers. I like that they are easy to prepare, and quick to cook. Will continue to grow these in the future.

What are the pros? Beautiful when healthy.

What are the cons? Susceptible to disease.

Review:

I tried growing 3 of these guys in a pot - maybe that's where I first went wrong - maybe there were too many in the pot. However, they were all flourishing with a sphagnum/vermiculite mix. They grew huge, with lovely, lush green leaves. To start with, I had 4 separate female flowers on the 3 different plants... but they all ended up dying and not being pollinated because I had no male flowers blooming at the same time. The next flush of growth was the male flowers. They were lovely, striking, vigorous. However, downy AND powdery mildew began to take my plants, even after I'd treated them for blossom end rot with a spritz of antacid and some good, healthy compost and fertilizer. No female flowers bloomed in a month. I've not received a single fruit from any of these plants. Maybe I'll try in the spring to do one plant per pot, but I'm utterly disappointed. Right now I'm seeing if anything happens after I hard pruned the disease bits. I'm not going to hold my breath, though.
