This squash appeared as a seedling in the garden compost spread on our veg patch - it must have come from veg waste we put on the compost heap the previous year - we had several Crown Prince squashes from the farm shop that year, and some butternuts.
Also the usual Hallowe'en type pumpkins.
This plant now covered an area about 10' x 10' and is still growing, spreading through the raspberry canes onto the terrace, and through the wax beans out onto the lawn. So far we have two small fruits.
Any ideas as to the type, and also, should I restrict the number of fruit on the plant, as we're getting quite late into the season now?
