Warty Looking Squash

Anonymous added on August 5, 2015 | Answered

My yellow squash has been growing well but getting greenish bumps all over the fruit. Looks like warts!! What could cause this? It's on only one plant. Also, one of my pumpkin plants started getting ratty/ripped rag looking leaves and didn't set fruit. This was a volunteer plant that started it self. Any ideas??
