Every seed came up, they're about 3' tall with a sturdy stem. Waiting until mid March to put out in the southern (Ga) garden. Will be licking my lips watching them flower and fruit. I like these as an addition to a traditional red tomato salad.
I had 40 mph winds my greenhouse fell over and was so surprised the seeds survived two days in the cold under soil and are still growing. The roots were in tact so i transplanted them, they are doing just fine. 10 stars

Hubbard Golden Squash Seed
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.
