This is the 19th century contemporary of the White Bush Scallop and the Giant Warted Crookneck. It has the same size and bush shape of the White Bush Scallop. The last ones that I grew eventually formed edible flesh like a winter squash as opposed to the gourd like shell of a ripe White. Didn't seem to affect its eating qualities as a summer squash. Slightly more flavor than its white counterpart.
