Dive into the storied legacy of the Blue Hubbard Squash, an heirloom favorite that’s as rich in history as it is in flavor. With its striking, steely blue exterior and sweet, vibrant interior, this squash is a beloved staple from the patch to the plate. Originating from South America and brought into the limelight in the early 1900s by James J. H. Gregory, who named it after his laundry woman Mrs. Elizabeth Hubbard, who gave it to him originally. This variety has been a cornerstone of autumnal feasts for over a century.

Known for its versatility and storage longevity, it’s perfect for roasting, baking, or even as a natural sweetener in your baked goods.
