But then, there was the mystery plant. It grew in the spot where the zucchini lived and died last year. I must be the only person who cannot grow zucchini.
The first fruit off of it looked like a fat yellow squash. And then these started appearing. They look like long, really fat zucchini, but have the orange coloring of pumpkins.
cross pollinate and become something new. So, in the spirit of scientific discovery, this "thing" needs a name. We've come up with two: a Zückin or a Pumchini.
But a squash by any other name still tastes as sweet! I made this bread (minus the nutmeg) and the recipe is definitely a keeper.
Zückin or a Pumchini? I know which one I like. What would you call it?
