Q.Please help identify squash. Crossbreed?
Planted zucchini, Delicata, acorn, and butternut. I now have squash that are definitely butternut shaped, dark green turning orange like acorn, and striped like Delicata. I thought butternut would not cross pollinate with the others. Don’t have a clue when to harvest.

According to the article below, squash will cross-pollinate between members of the same species. It does not rule out butternut.
Except for the zuchinni squash, it looks like harvest is when the rind turns hard. Good luck!
