Blue Hubbard Squash Seeds | Non-GMO | Heirloom | 20 seeds

Blue Hubbard is a type of winter squash that is known for its large size, long life in storage, and ability to keep people fed through the winter months ¹². It has a blue-green skin and a deep yellow to orange interior. The fruit can grow up to 30-50 pounds and has a sweet and nutty-tasting flesh. Blue Hubbard squash can be baked, roasted, steamed, or made into a puree and used in breads, pies, pasta dishes, soups, stews, or casseroles. It pairs well with flavors like chipotle, chili, cinnamon, nutmeg, curry, sage, and brown sugar ¹.

Growing winter squash is a relatively easy task. Here are some general steps to follow:

1. **Choose the right location**: Winter squash plants require full sun and plenty of space to grow. The soil should be well-drained and rich in organic matter.

2. **Plant the seeds**: Plant the seeds directly into the ground after the last frost of spring. You can also start them indoors 3-4 weeks before the last frost date.

3. **Provide support**: Winter squash plants are vines that need support to grow. You can use trellises, cages, or stakes to keep them off the ground.

4. **Water regularly**: Water the plants regularly, especially during dry spells. However, avoid overwatering as it can lead to root rot.

5. **Fertilize**: Apply a balanced fertilizer every 3-4 weeks during the growing season.

6. **Harvest**: Harvest the squash when they are fully mature and have a hard rind. Cut them off the vine with a sharp knife, leaving a small stem attached.
