Will the real Marina Di Chioggia please stand up

tcstoehrAugust 17, 2009

I'm growing a Marina Di Chioggia this year and it is doing well. However, the fruits are not warted as I had expected. They look just like the Marina Di Chioggia picture on this page:

However, I bought the seeds from Territorial Seed and their web-site pictures them like this:

Still others show this squash with broad shoulders, narrow hips, like this:

I guess it's all just part of the fun of growing squashes.
