History: Blue Hubbard has quite the history. Allegedly it arrived in Marblehead, Massachusetts in 1854 aboard a ship from the West Indies. Seeds were shared with J.H Gregory, who selected the unique blue color. He credited Miss Hubbard as the source of his seed and who told him it was the best squash she had tasted.
