Vegetable Description: The story is told that Elizabeth Hubbard, a washerwoman for the Gregory family in Marblehead, Massachusetts, gave her employer the seed for an heirloom squash. J. H. Gregory immediately named the squash "Hubbard," saying that Mrs. Hubbard was "a good, humble soul, and it pleases me to think that the name of such a one had become, without any intent of hers, famous." The Blue Hubbard type in particular was introduced in 1909 by the Gregory Seed Company.
