RE: Pumpkin

At first I thought it was a loofah, but I don't think it's wrinkly enough. Have you cut one open to see what's inside?

RE: Pumpkin

I wish you would post a few pictures of the leaves and stems. I think I know what it is....would you be willing to post a few more pictures?? Thanks

RE: Pumpkin

I can't help you with the name, but it looks neat. If you get any seeds out of it I'll be interested in some. It will probably be a bit different next year depending on what crossed with it.
