Butternut squash looks like a pumpkin

Hi planted a few butternut squashes and spaghetti squash and have a plant with these on?

    Interesting.  The colour is butternut but not the shape.

    Were the seeds from a packet or saved from a previous crop?  I ask as they can cross-pollinate.
    As far as 'standard' squash varieties go, it looks similar to a 'Long island cheese pumpkin', a variety of Cucurbita moschata.
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
  • Hi they were from a packet, looking forward to tasting it though 🤗
