Last spring I planted two seedlings that claimed to be pumpkin. They've grown long tendrils and lots of leaves, and have made several flowers, and I thought that was that (I subsequently found out you're supposed to pollinate pumpkin manually).
Having now cleared some of the weeds from around them, I've discovered that they have in fact fruited.
One plant has two fruits - both very dark green, spherical, one about 3" or 4" diameter and the other one about 6" diameter.
The other plant has two fruits - both yellow, spherical, about 1" in diameter.
Are these in fact pumpkins or maybe some other sort of squash (presumably it's possible the two seedlings are not the same variety)? How can I tell? How can I tell when they're ready to eat? Will the mini ones continue to grow now the weather has turned cold and wet?
