sunnyk(Z6 SW Coastal CT)October 4, 2011

I planted seeds for 'Carnival' that I received in a swap. So far I had a vine that gave me an Acorn squash and then another vine that gave me this:

I assumed it was a Pumpkin of sorts, but my son keeps telling me he thinks it is something else.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

The swapper grew carnival and other squash in the same patch and the seeds you got were hybrids from his/her carnival plant. Squash cross freely and this isn't a named variety. Looks like a large ornamental gourd to me, meaning that it may have a hard shell and won't be good for eating.
