What happens if you cross Howden pumpkin with an F1 tiger cross marrow?

    Lots of possible outcomes and no way to predict.  The F1 is already a cross and even pollinated with another tiger cross plant wouldn't produce tiger cross seeds so you could get some genes from either or both parents as well as some from the pumpkin.  Quite often crosses between different cucurbits produce inedible fruit.  Every seed could give you something different!

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
