Unknown Winter Squash
So due to the fact that I had thrown some winter squash and pumpkins in my lettuce garden at home, in the spring I had lots of winter squash that came up on its own. Most of them I pulled out since I did not want pumpkins growing all over in my valuable lettuce planting area. But I did leave a couple of vines that were out of the way and ended up growing out of the garden area anyhow. One of them was a regular normal pumpkin, but the other one is the plant in question. When I first seen it I thought it looked like a delicata winter squash crossed with maybe a pumpkin?
I grew a lot of winter squashes and pumpkins last year so I am not exactly sure what it would be a mix of, I do know I did not have anything exactly like it last year. Can not wait to cut into it and see how it tastes. If it is good I will have to see if I can work on getting a new variety going and save all the seeds.
