I can't take much credit for cultivating squash, when it actually grows wild, under very arid conditions. I'm not sure of the variety, but this may be what accidently cross-pollinated my C.moschata last year.
Here's a closer shot of the wild squash flower and fruit. Does anyone have a guess as to what it is? It's amazing that it can grow with virtually no rain for many months. Note: I think it's Cucurbita foetidissima, a wild arid species known by many names including buffalo gourd.
Here's my butternut squash. No flowers yet, but it's still less than a month old.
