Size Swap Squash (Delicata & Butternut)


Size Swap Squash
(with a few Recipes)

I have heard of cross pollination before but I have never experienced a size swap before.  Let me explain.  I grew Delicata and Butternut squash this year from seed that I saved from last year and two years ago.  I thought that they were both Heirloom seeds (but I am not 100% positive).
This is what happened:
The Delicata (seen on the right in the picture above), has the same coloring and the same shape- However, it is large like a Butternut squash would be.
The Butternut (seen on the left in the picture above), has the same shape and coloring as a Butternut but the size is small like a Delicata would normally grow.

Below is the winter squash patch - both varieties growing side by side.





The three pictures above show the gigantic Delicata squash.  And the two pictures below show the baby Butternut.



I decided to place my foot/shoe in the two pictures below to show you the size weirdness.



This is the normal size of Butternut SQUASH

Squash can be substituted for the pumpkin recipes below.
