ID a strange acorn squash?

Hi, all,

I'm hoping someone out there can point me in the right direction. I bought a type of acorn squash from the grocery store the other day because it was unusual looking.It has the colorings of an acorn squash and looks much like one except a little larger, a little more deeply ridged and more flattened and flared out on the top. If you sliced it vertically, it would look rather heart-shaped. Does anyone have an idea what this might be? I've looked at about a hundred picture of acorn squash today and haven't found one like it. Thanks!!

"Celebration Mixed" might be what you want. Not "Celebration", which seems to be yet another orange strain of Sweet Dumpling.

Here is a link that might be useful: Celebration Mixed
