Squash – Green and Yellow Two-toned

Q: We have a strange vine growing under our porch that we did not plant. Can you please help us identify what it is?

A: It’s a squash that came up from a seed that some animal dropped there.

The seed in question came from a squash that had two different parents: maybe an acorn squash and a yellow squash.

There’s a two-toned yellow summer squash called ‘Zephyr’ that is green and yellow. It’s a hybrid of yellow crookneck squash and another hybrid squash that was created from a cross between ‘Delicata’ and acorn squash.
