Vegetable Identification

My neighbors grow this squash every year and it grows over the fence between our yards. I have no clue what it is, though I do know it's rather large! I thought that it was some kind of squash just by the leaf shape, although the leaves are fuzzy like Lamb's Ear. Anyone have any clue?

Could be a gourd in the genus Lagenaria. Do you know if the plant has white flowers?


RE: Vegetable Identification

Yes, the flowers are white, maybe 1.5-2" across.

RE: Vegetable Identification

Yeah, it's definitely a gourd. Probably a bushel gourd. I'm sure your neighbor will gladly tell you what kind it is if you ask.
