twinning pepo?
« on: 2020-08-16, 07:59:28 AM »
Another cucurbit aficionado sent me pictures of a bizarre yellow crookneck plant: Anybody know what’s going on with this plant?
Gardening in rocky, slightly acidic sandy loam on the southern New England coast. Zone 7a, with wicked freeze/thaw cycles all winter. 44" of precipitation spread evenly throughout the year.

Now, if we could do that deliberately, we'd only need one plant to feed the neighbourhood.
