    Where is this fruit growing? It looks like a member of the squash family. Marrow, etc.
    • the plant is growing in my little patch in my garden and is spreading vigourously do you know what type it is? image

    Difficult to tell at this stage Ryan but as the fruit gets larger the shape and colouring should help us to ID it.  Keep us updated. image

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
  • okay thanks i will image its my first year growing this type of Veg but i love it! the fruit swells each day

    It looks like a winter squash or pumpkin.

    You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things. <3
  • I was actually told it was a pumpkin but the fruit isn't round? That's my only problem

    hi looks just like some of mine and they are pumpkins which are now becoming prolific. planted giant atlantic pumpkins this year however it is a trial and i have not pinched out any leaves they grow amazingly quick.

    i have three which are at least 15ft long with small fruits like yours branching off so might get some?

    i water them most days as they are greedie feeders and i have so much comfrey feed weekly which is unbelievable as a feed.

    let us know how they do happy gardening
