What kind of Squash?

Asked May 14, 2018, 3:52 PM EDT

We planted some seeds we found, but aren't sure what they are. Definitely a squash, but pumpkin, spaghetti? It has just started to grow something off the blossom, picture is attached.
Thank you,

The swollen area below the blossom is the flower ovary, which will become the squash. At this early stage, it is probably not possible to tell what kind of squash it is going to be.

Squash (pumpkins and summer squash are in the same family) plants cross pollinate, so the seeds that you have planted could produce a hybrid squash that will have attributes of both of the parent plants....
