Ok... I am growing the round strain of the famous Warsaw Buff Pie Pumpkin and I am not sure if they are forming correctly. All of my pollinated young fruit start out as a fattened butternut shape and then, as they grow, the shoulders start to widen and show the beginnings of those really deep ribs I've seen in photos posted by other growers. BUT... they are all still more of a short fat 2 liter soda bottle shape. (with the cap being the blossom end)
Have any of you experienced this? If so, when do they start to plump up and exhibit that beautiful deep, round, heavily ribbed appearance I got so excited about?
Thanks to any and all squashaholics who care to share!
