Medium_pumpkin_26 I have asked this several times and have not yet found an answer - can you identify this pumpkin for me

I planted three pumpkins last year and have had what I feel is some self seeded pumpkins from the compost I used. It is not like my other pumpkins and wonder if you can identify it.

Answer: Hi Ruth,
From the photo it does look like a gramma pumpkin. Of course there is always the possibility that if you had planted a number of varieties of pumpkins last season, this pumpkin could be the result of cross pollination – perhaps a cross between a Kent pumpkin and a Butternut pumpkin. In any case I am sure it will be lovely and buttery to eat. Enjoy.
