The Q&A Archives: My yellow straight neck squash is green?

Question: A little over a month ago I bought a plant labeled "yellow straight neck squash". I am new to gardening, but I was expecting to see long yellow fruit, not the dark green spherical fruit I'm seeing. The plant is bushy with yellow flowers, and the largest fruit is about the size of a tennis ball. Did I get a wrong label and if so, what am I growing? Or will they eventually lengthen and turn yellow?
