To anyone who can help

I just planted my garden for the first time a few years ago. I am still learning and I forgot to write down what squash I planted where. Now I have this sqauash that I am trying to identify. I believe it is a lumina, lillyphon pumpkin winter squash but am not sure?


Anyone who could help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanky you Sky

Your best bet is probably to look through some seed catalogs with photos, and see what matches. It sounds tedious, but if you are picking out seeds for next year anyway, it can fit right in. You can narrow down the possibilities by summer or winter squash, and make sure it is at the harvest stage, as many fruits change color when ripe.

I believe it may be the Fortna White Pumpkin...
