Strange Zucchini

These cute round things came off of the volunteer plants in the garden that I guessed in a eariler post are squash. They look more like zucchini pumpkins. Has anyone had this happen before?
Oh and, those are my first Sweet Banana Peppers of the season.

  1. So jealous you are harvesting produce already. In NH, we are thrilled to have plants in the ground. I think you have a hybrid – maybe you’ve got yourself a winner there.

  2. They look exactly like the pumpkins we grew last year. We planted really late, so they didn’t have enough time to ripen before Halloween.

    • Your volunteer seed was possibly from a hybrid zucchini. The seed from hybrids won’t produce a zucchini like its parent, but like one of its “grandparents.” So you may have some type of heirloom throwback. Very likely good to eat though!

      • Interesting. Every year I always have something come up that I didn’t plant but these eight squash plants are the first to acutally thrive. Both of the ones pictured came from different plants. I discovered today the aphids are infesting them and I need to get something on them before it’s too late.
