SQUASH – BLUE HUBBARD
Squash – Blue Hubbard
Blue hubbard squash is a very old heirloom squash dating to at least 1798 when it was introduced in Massachusetts. One of the prettiest squashes too, with its bluish-grey warty exterior. Inside it has thick sweet dry orange flesh that makes great pies but it also delicious as a soup or roasted. The best way to open a big squash like this is to put it in a plastic bag and drop it straight down on a hard floor – it will crack open and you can cut from there. A rugged blue-gray squash with deep yellow flesh and good texture. Excellent keeper. 90-100 days.
Sow seed directly into the garden or pots. Plant seeds 1/2 inch deep covering with fine soil. Plant in a sunny location in rich, well-drained soil. Keep fairly well watered and fertilize monthly, but avoid constant over watering and continual use of high-nitrogen fertilizers…
