Spaghetti Squash


Lynnar3171 added on May 8, 2016 | Answered

I'm new to gardening and I thought I planted spaghetti squash several months ago. My garden is now full of several yellow smaller squashes. I picked a large yellow one last night and cooked it like I normally would and when I opened it up. It was full of a watered substance and the squash looking flesh was mushy. I tasted it and it was edible but I just don't know what it was. I took a picture of it and would love for someone to tell me what it is. It was as large as any squash I've bought from the store. Can someone please help?!

We did not receive the image.

You may have harvested your squash too soon.

Watch for the color to change from creamy yellow to a nice dark, golden yellow.
If there is any green left on the squash it is not ripe.
If you can scratch the squash easily with your fingernail, it is not ready.
A ripe squash skin should be hard and resistant to scratching.
