Lol, how cute!! Well, if I remember correctly, zucchini and pumpkins are very close relatives, and can cross polinate. So you may actually have a zumpkin Cut it open and take some pictures! I'd love to see what's inside, and that'll probably help us know what it is.

A zumpkin you suggest? That is hilarious. Or a Pucchini like the Italian composer? Have two more outside. Whatever it is it's going to be in a casserole very soon. A zumpkin or pucchini casserole. Anyone else have a suggestion?
I say pumpkin and it will probably, eventually, turn orange.
There are certain pursuits which, if not wholly poetic and true, do at least suggest a nobler and finer relation to nature than we know. The keeping of bees, for instance. ~ Henry David Thoreau

Thank you both for your input. Zumpkin or pumpkin, I will leave the other two on the vine and see if they stay green or turn orange. As for the one in the picture I'll open it up and see if there's anything interesting to write about.
My vote is for a winter squash of some kind. Can't wait to see if they turn orange like a pumpkin or tan like a butter nut. I guess they could stay green like an acorn volunteers are soooooooo cool.

I too have grown what I thought was zucchini and now it has turned orange. I used several before this to make zucchini bread and it came out great. They grew out of my compost pile in the back yard and in my front yard. I actually had two plants in one in the front and grew two traditional pumpkins and then what I thought was zucchini on the other part. In both cases they grew wild.[quote]
