I had a volunteer squash come up from a compost pile this spring and I let it grow. I love volunteer plants and trying to figure out what they will become. It's shaped like a spaghetti squash, maybe a little thinner and longer with yellow/orange skin, but inside the flesh is light green and it doesn't "shred." I'm pretty sure it came up from a whole squash that someone had given me and I threw it on the compost heap because I didn't really want it - it was before primal. I'm wondering if the former plant cross-bred with some other squash or it I just picked it too soon. The stem had started to turn brown and the skin was hard so I figured it was okay to pick and cook. I've got at least 7 more on the plant which is taking over my yard.
No announcement yet.
What looks like an orange yellow spaghetti squash on the outside, but...
