Last year a grew a few pumpkin plants, and managed to get two pumpkis weighing ~30 and~70 lbs. This year, I have grown three new plants from the seeds I took from the 70 lb fruit.
These three plants are just starting to show their fruit below new female flowers now. Two of these plants are showing normal, yellowish fruit like my plants last year had done -BUT one plant, the biggest, is showing little GREEN fruit. In addition, this plant also has somewhat different shaped leaves.
Now I read that pumpkins can crossbreed with a number of different squashes as well as cucumbers or zuchinni... the thing is, I only grew pumpkins last year, so if there was some pollen from another species it must have come from somebody elses garden.
So I guess I have a Zumpkin on my hands. Just wondering if anyone has grown one of thes before, and what it's like.
