This is supposed to be a zucchini. All fruit have looked like this. In hill with 3 more zucchinis bearing normal-looking fruit.

    I think there is some gourd pollen in the gene pool. Are these fruits edible? Do they taste like zucchini?

    No gourds anywhere near that I know of. Since all fruit look the same from this plant, perhaps some mix-up in seeds in plant nursery. I have not tasted. Insides look more dense than squash.

    I bought seeds for a gray zuchinni squash that look much like this.
