What is this

Can someone tell me what kind of squash this is. I though it was supposed to be an acorn but once it started to grow quickly I realized it wasn't.

They look like acorns to me. The fruit shape will change a little as they mature. Just leave them alone and watch...

The only reason I didn't think it was an acorn was its not growing on a vine.

Thats awesome to know. I've grown acorn a few times and it has always been on a vine. I knew someone here would be able to help me out. Thank you very much.

Agree... it's an acorn. I've grown bush acorns before and they grew as a straight up stem for some amount of time before leaning over horizontally. Not exactly a bush, but not really a vine either. At least not a sprawling vine.

Yep, my acorn started out as a bush this year, but it is vining quite a bit now.
