A long time ago I went to some markets and was given a spaghetti squash plant. It had a tag saying it was in fact a SS. I planted it, it grew a bit and I ended up with 1 fruit.
This morning I went to a garden SSS meet up and brought home a Spaghetti squash. The woman that grew it, and several hundred others! said that it was in fact a SS.
Hmmm. Are these actually the same thing? Is one just malformed? Or not ripe yet? Or something completely different to a Spaghetti Squash?
I will cut them open sometime this week and see what the insides look like but thinking mine isn't *quite right* But maybe it is *quite right* for what it really is...
Someone will know and that someone will tell me. I hope. And thankyou if that someone is you.
Update. I knew someone would know! I have just been told "Green Hubbard Squash. It's a pumpkin, Cucurbita maxima species." It's ripe and I eat it like pumpkin.
