Yellow cobra zucchini
What a cute zuke!! I have never seen one like that! I hope it tastes as interesting as it looks!
It does have some properties that resemble a Zucchini, although I might even go as far as saying it is a Melon of some sort that was planted to compact and therefore grew where the soil was softest, hence the shape.I think it will taste bitter, very very bitter, however i wouldn't want to cut it up to find out. I would keep it the way it is, name it Frederick and then tuck it into bed next to me each night.
We named it Mr Zucchini, but I am happy to change his name to Frederick just for you. As his pimp it will cost you if you want to take him to bed.
Looks like a crookneck zucchini to me....I think it will be delicious but it looks so good I think I would let it dry and keep it.
A stiff neck indeed. I have never seen it put it's big head down to rest. Keeping it did cross my mind but I have got to find out what it is. Happening soon.
Looks like a tromboncini gone wrong, or could be a cross between a crook neck and a tromboncini?I think it will taste fine if you can bring yourself to eat Mr Zucchini.
Thanks greenfumb. The problem is I don't know if you are all serious with name suggestions or just being funny. I thought Kate was being clever with her suggestion of crook neck but now I think you are talking about real vegetables.
Hi Jason, thanks for visiting my blog & taking the time to comment.I have linked this particular post to my FB page.Tromboncini would be my guess,not one I have grown but I think all squashes can cross pollinate?!
I had a discussion awhile ago, I think with Scarecrow, that zucchinis and pumpkins are related. I assume that means you can get some strange combinations. Please correct me if I am wrong.And thanks for the link Peggy.
LOL!! '...I think you're talking about real vegetables' :DYour golden cobra with a crook neck from trombone playing is a very fine vegetable indeed - did it taste any good? :)
Thanks Mrs Bok, your comment is very nicely done. I have tasted it I will blog about it very soon.
This would have to be the funnies blog i have ever read. I cant decipher wether the names are humorous or real either Jason.If they are real, my question is...who comes up with these funny names in the first place. :-)
amydingley thanks. I was hoping it would be entertaining. And good question. Obviously gardeners have a good sense of humour.
If you don't know which option to select... Name/URL is a recommended option. And you only need to provide a name.
