Trying to ID this gourd?

Asked September 28, 2018, 9:39 AM EDT

I am trying to determine if this is a bottle gourd or what type. Is it edible? when to pick? Thank you for you help.

Here is a page from our website about that:

Otherwise, we wonder if it might be similar to a white crookneck pumpkin winter squash shown here:
