Cucumbers/Zucchini on Same Plant

Anonymous added on July 28, 2011 | Answered

My Zucchini plant is producing zucchini and cucumbers. How is that possible? They seem to be from the same family of plants, but I am really surprised.

Genetically, cucumbers and squash cannot cross pollinate so they can't grow on the same plant, technically. But it is possible that a zucchini seed and a cucumber seed were accidentally planted in the same location and perhaps grew so close together that they fused as they were growing, so that it would be difficult to separate one plant from the other.
