(C. maxima) 110 days. A spectacular storage squash, the famously long lasting hubbard squash arrived in Marblehead Massachusetts in 1854 in the holds of a ship from the West Indies. Seeds from the large green squash that originated in South America were shared with local seedsman J.H Gregory. A savvy breeder, Gregory selected the hubbard’s skin to a more unique blue color and devoted his career to marketing the massive fruits. Gregory credited a Miss Hubbard as the person who originally gifted him the seeds, he noted that she told him it was the best tasting squash she had ever tried and that she was given the seeds from a Captain aboard a ship from the West Indies. A conflicting account from a local Marblehead woman stated that Miss Hubbard had bred the squash in her home garden from seeds originally brought on the ship from the West Indies. Either way, the collosal blue squash was naturally a great choice for a long sea journey as the thick skin makes for a longer shelf life. Blue Hubbard squash are known for keeping up to 6 months in the pantry. The fruit can weigh from 15- 40 pounds each, making them top choice for restaurants and family meals.

What are the pros? Can't go wrong

What are the cons? Squash Vine Borers and Beetles

Review:

There is pretty much zero chance of messing this up, if you follow the basic plant growth formula(water sun dirt=plant). However, I was too excited about this plant and did not do any further research, squash vine borers and cucumber beetles absolutely love this plant. I mean there's almost a 100% chance they will be there, depending on your area. Every morning and evening I prepare for war against these pest. It's not difficult but it is incredibly tedious, and I admit I enjoy the challenge. Do your research on how to prevent them and how to handle them if it happens.

Review:

In less than 2 months my 2 plants took over my entire 40 x 40 garden. They set 14 squash, with more bulbs popping up. Smallest is about 2 lbs and the largest is about 14 lbs. Cant wait to start the harvest and eat them next month. Had a small problem with squash bugs ( vine borers), but weekly spray with Seven for 4 weeks took care of that. These need a LOT of room, but they are well worth it

What are the pros? The tastiest of all squash!

Review:

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.
