Default crossing spaghetti squash and zucchini?



Advertise Here

I planted my spaghetti squash and zucchini side by side. Today Roses mentioned that they could cross and bells went off in my head. The couple spaghetti squash closest to the zucchini are green and the rest are white. I've done some googling around and am reading it shouldn't affect this years fruit, just the seeds. But...they sure look like zuccsketti squash to me. What do you think is going on?

If they cross you wont know it unless you plant seeds from this years crop and see what grows.

Yes, that's what I'm reading, but that doesn't explain why these have green zucchini markings :\ The rest are white.

I was out checking my spaghetti squash and seen the biggest one turning green a little,they are planted next to the pumpkins.But I'm not worried it is probably part of its growing process as i have never grown spaghetti squash before....
