Mystery squash


So in a corner of my yard I had a squash of some sort come up among some weeds. I believe it to be the product of a seed that must be an unintentional cross from two varieties I grew last year. (not sure which, but none were pumpkins)

What is interesting is that this squash took the form of a substantial yellow pumpkin (and grew on sprawling pumpkin-style vines.)


Looks like a pumpkin. And a squash. Nice size!


Let us know how it tastes. If it tastes good and does well with diseases and bugs it might be worth seeing how the next generation does.


That’s a beauty!


Looks like a Cinderella pumpkin, squirrels put it there maybe.


Looks like a gourd to me.
