Mini Pumpkin Gourds

At the swap in Markham this spring, I was giving away these mini pumpkin gourds plants. I took the seeds from a mini pumpkin gourd and winter sowed. I regret to say that my plant is NOT producing the little pumpkins. Not sure what they are yet, but they are definitely not true to seed.
I don't remember who all took the plants, but would like to hear from anyone who did to see if any of the plants are producing the actual mini pumpkins.

Hi Elaine
I have one of your babies from the winners circle - so far its had a few yellow flowers but they seem to fall off, so no fruit so far. No regrets, it fills its space nicely like a ground cover, pumpkins or no pumpkins. Thanks again!
