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 Chicago Warted Hubbard in particular was developed and introduced in 1894 by Budlong Gardens in Chicago.
