Wanna try to create my own gourds this year.

Hello everyone, i grow many gourds every year. This year i want to save a spot at the end of my garden to try and pollinate certain gourd plants with different plants to make a different kind of gourd. Does anyone know of a site that can tell me which pumpkins need to be pollinated together to make a certain one ? I.E, what do i cross with a acorn squash, to get a white acorn ? thanks

RE: Wanna try to create my own gourds this year.

So far, you've mentioned 'gourds', 'pumpkins', and 'squash'. While in the same family they are three separate things. Someone here on the forums may have some guidance for you. Check with your local Cooperative Extension Service for booklets or bulletins on cross-pollination. Good luck.

I'm pretty decent with Hardshells, but I can`t help you with edibles.
