It could possibly be a 'Squashkin'. Pumpkins and squash can cross breed easily with some outstanding varieties. I remember my grandfather talking of them.

they are both in Cucurbita. i believe coloring has more to do with the common name given to the fruit. gree n or yellow is squash, orange is pumpkin.


I love the sweet scents wafting in the breeze. I stop to admire the vibrant colors of all living things. And people think me odd. Then ODD I am!!!

Helping the world one seed at a time

When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it. If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant. Mary Ann LaPensee

The bumps make it look like a gourd. What else do you or a neighbor have growing that bees may have crossed it with?
