Description

Winter Squash - Blue Hubbard - Cucurbita maxima

Tender Annual Heirloom. Harvest silvery Blue Hubbard squash from your garden and you'll be set for whatever winter throws at you. These 12-40 lb. delicious squashes have hard skins and keep well through the cold months. The yellow-orange flesh is flavorful and on the dry side, ready to be baked or made into pies in the fall and winter.

Did You Know? Blue Hubbard is a longtime favorite in the U.S. and probably originated in the West Indies.

Soil and Water: Provide squash plants with deep mounds of organic matter, rich soil, and heavy, even water. All squash are extremely frost sensitive, so use mulch to heat soils in early spring and row covers to protect from frost at both ends of the growing cycle, especially in short growing seasons.

Planting and Growing: Start seeds indoors 3-4 weeks before the last frost, or sow seed directly once soils are at least 70°F.

Harvesting and Storage: Harvest when you can no longer pierce the skin with a thumbnail, but be sure to harvest before the first hard frost. Cut squash from the vine leaving 2"-3" of stem attached. Allow to cure in the sun for 10 days to finish hardening the skins. Store in cool, dry conditions. To minimize rotting, store in a single layer and do not allow squashes to touch.

Reviews

The best tasting squash

If you love winter squash like I do you have to try this sweet, nutty flavored one. Very large but stores well in the refrigerator after being cut open.
