I, too, have green spaghetti squash like some of the ones shown above...except mine were all planted from a packet of Burpee seeds (it says Winter squash, Vegetable Spaghetti), which shows a ripe, solid-color bright yellow squash on the front. Every single one of mine looks like the photos I've attached, green with darker or lighter stripes and mottling. The plants have a bush-type habit rather than the long vines I usually get with squash and pumpkins. I am wondering how I will know when these are ripe, i.e., will they turn bright yellow? It looks like some of the larger ones are starting to turn a little yellow, but they still have the very noticeable stripes and mottled look. (BTW, I do have acorn squash planted as well, but not in the same bed, and I have hand pollinated all of the spaghetti squash, so I don't think it's a cross-pollination scenario.)
