Description

First cultivated in the late 18th century, Green Hubbard Winter Squash was introduced commercially in the 1840's by the seedsman James J. H. Gregory, who named it after his neighbor Elizabeth Hubbard of Marblehead, Mass.  The fruits are bronze-green, 12-15 inches long, and the delicious flesh is golden yellow, thick, and fine-textured.

Direct sow seeds in hills or rows after the last spring frost; for hills, sow 5-7 seeds per 12"-wide hill, then thin to the best 3 plants per hill.  Winter Squash prefer moist but well-drained, fertile soil.  Harvest as the skin hardens and the leaves die back.  Approximately 16 seeds per packet.
