I saved some seeds a few years ago, hoping to save some money, but the resulting fruit came in about six different types, from some resembling marrows to some resembling ornamental gourds. Very few showed any tendancy to resemble spaghetti when attacked with a fork, and most were either bitter, or completely tasteless. I assume that this was due to the original seed being of a Hybrid variety, being cross pollenated by other marrow/squash plants on adjoining allotments. The moral is, with this vegetable, to always start with new seed, as a whole season could be wasted.
