Squash

Postby BJTJ » Thu Jan 19, 2012 12:57 pm

HI all
I have several varieties of squash growing in my garden. One sort is a round one the size of a saucer but is grey. It is the same shape as the baby squash which are bright yellow and ready for picking like the zuccini. How do I know when the larger ones are ready, do they go yellow as well or stay the pumpkin gray color and need do they need to stay on the vine until it dries off like pumkins?? :? :? Bel.

Sorry Bel but I have not grown the type of grey squash you are describing, I would be inclined to remove one of them then cut it up to see what it is like, maybe even cook it to do the taste test as well.

Hi Bel,

Where did you get the seeds from? They may know... or upload a photo and someone may recognise them.

Or are they a cross like the pumpkin I got last year?
