In The Greenhouse - Mystery Winter Squash

Pin It

Will you look at what's happening in my greenhouse on this chilly, almost Thanksgiving day? Yes, those are tomatoes. Volunteer tomatoes. Subject for another post.

What I really want some help with is this squash. Also a volunteer, I've not seen one like it anywhere. It turns orange and green and then falls off the vine and rots. Sorry I don't have a photo of the mature fruit. I'm hoping this one will mature and allow me to get a shot.

It mostly grows upright like this, fruit and all, until the growing fruit weights it down and it ends up on the ground.
If any of my Blotanical friends know what kind of squash this is, I'd appreciate your comments.

Tomatoes? Wow! And mystery squash, sure is a mystery to me. I have no idea, unfortunately. I look forward to reading everyone else's suggestions.
