Green Hubbard Squash is shaped resembling a giant Hersey kiss: wide at the base, rounded, and tapering to a tip at the top.
The rind is dark, dull green or bluish-green.
The squash will grow 23 to 30 cm (9 to 12 inches) wide at the base, 30 to 38 cm (12 to 15 inches) tall, and weigh 6 3/4 to 15 3/4 kg (15 to 35 pounds.)
Inside it has dry, golden, finely-textured flesh with a sweet taste.
95 to 110 days days from seed.
Green Hubbard Squash, and the one called True Hubbard, are perhaps the two squashes still available that are closest to the original Hubbards, which now appear to be lost.
Green Hubbard Squash was in New England before 1798.
No one is sure where it originated from, possibly the Caribbean or South America.
Promoted by the J. H. Gregory seed company in the 1840s.
