Seems like the most reasonable option to me! Weird.

This one was large orange/small grapefruit sized. There are a few others growing, one of which is now larger than this.

They're growing outdoors at the allotment. I can't remember if the plant was grafted or not, but google suggests that the Jamie Oliver mini cucumber plants generally are?

When it started, I thought maybe an apple cucumber but it's way too dark and the inside just looks squashy..

I have plenty of photos. Is there an option to upload if I use a laptop as opposed to my phone?

It's a Jamie Oliver mini cucumber plant from Homebase. I'm sure it was an F1. Or alleged to be! My query, really, was as to what I've been reading about cucumbers not cross pollinating with squash at all. Which it obviously has!
I had no idea this could happen, it's fascinating

Hi there I have a mini cucumber plant which has produced quite well, however.. There are a couple of strange vines growing off of it and they are producing a dark green round squash of some description. Everywhere I've looked tells me that this does not/can not happen. Does anyone have experience of this?
