Blue Hubbard Squash
- Step up your Autumn style: Ditch the same-old-same-old orange pumpkins, and try a mix of heirloom pumpkins, gourds, and squash in unusual, shapes, colors, and textures.
- Blue Hubbard Squash is prized for its gorgeous gray-blue skin, and fantastic almond shape. A beautiful contrast to the bright and round shapes of other pumpkins, this specimen fruit makes elegant Autumn decorating easy. Average size is 12"-18" in length.
- FUN FACTS-- All fruit in the Squash & Pumpkin families are edible! Gourds are ornamental, and not for eating. Blue Hubbards have deep orange flesh with the sweet, nutty flavor of a sweet potato.
- PUMPKIN PRO TIPS-- Create a barrier between your pumpkin and the surface it is placed on with a bit of hay, burlap, or cut autumn branches. This will allow air flow below the pumpkin and keep it from rotting against the wet surface. If a critter gnaws on your pumpkin, or you have carved your pumpkin, rubbing Vaseline into the exposed fruit will prevent dehydration and mold.
