Can I cross pollinate a male pumpkin to a female spineless zucchini? I pollinated with a male jack-o-lantern pumpkin and a female spineless zucchini. Will it work and will it be edible?

It may work, but when your in an open garden there can be pollination from many sources.
There is no control. You won't know the true pollination.

Experimenting is great fun in the garden!

Yes, of course it would be edible. Enjoy.
