Is a very old, large, hardy sort for storage. The fruits with their smooth, but undulating, hard, silver-blue peel, weigh between 2 and 15 kg. They taper off towards the points and have a thick, orange-yellow, smooth flesh of fine quality and flavour. B. can handle a cooler climate than most and may yield a good harvest in the far North. A ripe Blue Hubbard can be stored for up to a year. Big seeds. A portion has about 7 seeds.
