Chicago Warted Hubbard

  • Squash Chicago Warted Hubbard

(Cucurbita maxima) An American heirloom developed by Budlong Gardens, Chicago, from the original Hubbard-type squash. It was introduced commercially by Vaughan's Seed Store, Chicago in 1894, who described it as “the best of its class, rich in quality, a keeper and thick fleshed - such will sell at sight.” Trailing vines produce large (5.5-6kg), warty, wrinkled, olive green fruit with fine-grained, sweet, orange flesh. Perfect for soup making.
