Hello,

Here is another pumpkin/squash/gourd. Can you tell me what kind it is? I'm thinking maybe a golden hubbard but I'm not 100% sure. Any ideas?

looks like some sort of warted pumpkin/squash with an attitiude.
Did you save the seeds? Was the flesh like a pumpkin or more like a squash.....solid and dark orange, or a bit softer and medium orange in color???
Did you grow this thing? or, do you plan to grow them next season? How big is it? Melon size, or smaller? Did you buy it at a farm market or a pumpkin patch.
The pumpkin patch we visit has everything labeled, and usually mentions what its best for.
