Winter Squash varieties likely originated in the West Indies or South America and were first documented in the U.S. in 1798 when seed was brought to Marblehead, Massachusetts. The seedman, J. H. Gregory, introduced this squash commercially in the 1840s and named it after Elizabeth Hubbard of Marblehead. In 1815 Mrs. Henry Dearborn of Boston sent Winter Squash seed to Jefferson and both Winter and Summer Squashes were planted at Monticello in 1817.
The fruits are bronze green; 12-15 inches long; the flesh is golden yellow, thick, and fine textured. Sow seed in hills after the last spring frost in full sun.
Approximately 16 seeds per pack.
