Help In Gourd/Pumpkin ID
Hi Folks -
I saw a couple of varieties of gourds or pumpkins at the local fair this past week which, to me, were very unusual. I would like to describe them as best I can and, perhaps, someone could help me out with their ID and tell me where I could obtain seeds.
Here they are:
1) A round fruit, much more flat than tall. Approximately 10-15 lbs. Pale orange skin. The distinguishing feature on this one is that it was completely covered with LARGE, irregularly-shaped warts, which looked exactly like peanut shells.
2) A round fruit, much more flat than tall. Approximately 5-10 lbs. Very dark green to black skin with large, roundish warts completely covering the fruit. The warts were as large as or larger than marble size.
Thank you for your help.
