Cucumber Squash

Anonymous added on August 31, 2011 | Answered

Your article says it's a wives' tale to cross pollinate a cucumber with a squash. Today I went to Salem, New York where one of my customers gave me a foot and a half long cucumber mixed with a squash. I and many others have never seen it before. It's light green and ribbed but slightly weird looking, like a cactus, but it has one side slightly whitish. Maybe you can give me some imput.
