Some time ago, someone mentioned that when cross pollinating a flower
with pollen from a different species, that the attributes of the pollinator
do not show up in the fruit. My squash would not agree with that: One of
my Chersonskaya Squash produced a female flower with no male flowers to
pollinate it so I cross pollinated it with Sweet Dumpling Squash pollen.
All of my Chersonskaya Squash produced their normal green fruits except
for the one pollinated with Sweet Dumpling which produced a white fruit.
The white fruit contained white seeds whereas all of the other seed is
