Winter Squash Golden Hubbard


Golden Hubbard Squash has a vigorous trailing habit producing large, slightly ridged fruits weighing up to 3kg. Beneath the skin there is an orange-yellow flesh of excellent flavour similar to the nutty taste of a sweet potato. The not so attractive fruits are very good for winter storage. Difficult to peel because of its bumpy skin, this variety is best roasted with its skin on.

When to Sow Golden Hubbard Squash Seeds

April to May under glass or Mid-May to June outdoors.

Where to Sow

Sow seed on edge 1.5cm (1/2") deep to prevent rotting in pots or trays during April to May 2.5cm (1") apart under glass at 20°C (68°F) using good quality seed sowing compost. Sow outdoors mid-May to June direct into growing site 1.5cm (1/2") deep 2 to 3 seeds in each position 90-100cm (36-40") apart.

What to do next

Greenhouse sowings should be gradually hardened off once they have developed the first pair of rough leaves and transplanted to growing site in late-May to early-June with a space of 90-100cm (36-40"), once all risk of frost has passed. Outdoor sowings should be thinned to one plant per station.
