Cucurbita maxima
Hubbard Golden Squash Seed (100 days)

This squash was introduced in the 1898 by D.M. Ferry and is still around because of its thick and tasty orange flesh.  Bright orange, 8-10 lb, tear-dropped shaped squash are born on vigorous vines.

Martha Stewart Living says...
"The beautiful glossy orange skin of 'Golden Hubbard,' also known as 'Orange Hubbard,' makes it a standout among Hubbard squashes. Weighing 8-12 pounds, the fruits store for months, so you can enjoy the sweet, fine-grained, yellow flesh all winter long."

Burpee's 1932 Seed Catalog Says...
"Of the typical Hubbard shape, with a glossy, much warted, orange-yellow skin.  The thick flesh is sweet; rather dry.  One of the best in quality.  Matures early and bears prolifically."


It is important to leave squash to cure for about a week in the field before storing them in the root cellar.

Planting Tips For Heirloom Winter Squash Seeds:

Heirloom winter squash don't mind the heat as much as their name implies.  Only plant once the soil temperature warms to at least 70 degrees and keep in mind that most heirloom varieties of winter squash take 110 days to mature.  So be sure to leave enough time to allow them to fully develop. 

Plant 3-6 heirloom squash seeds per hill.  Once they have shown true leaves and grown in size, you should thin out to the 3 strongest plants.  Remember, harvest these winter squash continually in order to keep the plant producing.

Seed Care tips for Heirloom Winter Squash:

Heirloom seeds are hardy but always take care with your garden seeds to give them the appropriate amount of moisture - not letting the vegetable seeds dry out prematurely or overwatering and possibly having them rot.
