Hi All,

I planted 5 zucchini seeds - one of the plant has a zucchini that looks like zucchini. and another one looks like the one in the picture. Is this really a zucchini ?

Thanks and regards

Yeah just a different shape. Shape is often affected by weather at the time of pollination and soil moisture levels.

There are zukes bred to be shaped like that. Could be a bit of mixed parentage in your seed packet.

There's a very round zucchini variety called eight ball. Pretty popular at the farmers markets around here. Maybe one of your plant's parents was that type.
