Mystery Vegi?

We regularly pitch vegi scraps into our flower bed with tomato plants and other various things sprouting up. This year we have a mystery vine.
I thing it may be some sort of squash but we are unable to identify it. Its about 7 inches long and 5 or so in diameter. Its yellow and has some white specs on it. I have attached the leaf pic as well. It has yellow blooms to. Anyone able to tell us what it is? It may even be ready to pick but we don't know.

It looks more like a melon leaf than a squash. I'm thinking crenshaw melon. One of those less common types that you don't realize until the cash register that $3-$4 a pound can really add up! Here's your chance to sell it for a new WFCO converter...

Looks to me like a yellow zuchinni. Some people from the south call them yellow squash. It tastes like a green zuchinni. We grow them on our farm. It looks a bit fatter than the ones we grow, but it may be overgrown. Can you cut it open & look at the inside? With zuchinni, you have to pick them to get the plant to continue to put out fruit. If you can, take a picture of the inside & post it. Maybe I can get ahold of my husband to find out for sure.

Darn, I knew I should have held off buying my intellipower. . . .
We have squash and zucchini in our "real" garden and its different from them. The leaf is similar but this is more of a vine where a squash is more of a bush type.
I guess I'll have to sacrifice one and cut it open.
thanks
James

That was my thought. Is the skin soft like a zucchini or hard more like a winter-spagetti squash.

I'm no gardener, but I'd be careful if it starts saying "feed me".

If it was a hybrid seed that ended up in the garden,then the plant could be anything from back down the hybrid line.If it tastes good eat it. Dave

Mystery Solved

Yes it was a spaghetti squash and we enjoyed them until the vine burned up from the heat this summer . We cut them in half and baked face down for 30 minutes. Let cool a bit, scoop out seeds and scrape out flesh with a fork and enjoy, mmmmmmmmm!! Time to get the fall garden going.
thanks yall

Squashes, cucumbers, melons often hybridize with each other and you could get something really strange. Usually they don't taste very good (think melon that tastes like a cucumber) but you might be surprised!

Actually you can in Europe. BBC documented this in the 50's.



Enjoy!
