My friend gave me this plant as a seedling and I'm trying to figure out what kind of plant it is. Its big enough now that its producing fruit. I think its some kind of squash but which one? How do I know when its time to harvest?

At first glance I see a pumpkin but as I think about it I need to know a little more. What size is the fruit? How long is the vine?

RE: What kind of squash is this

It is pumpkin-like but as a seedling it could be a cross of whatever squash was growing in that neighborhood.

Unless you meant the plant was grown from seed from a packet.

That the squash has already taken on color and the leaves are beginning to mildew is remarkably advanced for the season.
