Was supose to be black beauty Zucchini. Looks like a pumpkin forming on a zucchini plant. Round zucchini? there pretty big though and getting bigger.
These are plants from the same batch of seed but look different coloured.

Looks to me like an "Eight Ball" zuke. They get about softball size for best flavor but if left to grow they'll get a tad bigger.

this is what inside looks like. Sort of reminds me of a not formed pumpkin..are pumpkins green before they go orange? Smells like a pumpkin but could be a zucchini?Thumb of 2011-11-02/bree/82b974 Thumb of 2011-11-02/bree/fef500

Bush or vine? several of the green round zukes look like your photos. The bottom photo is a dead ringer for Lucky 8. Second photo appears to be a bush, so I expect you have one of the green round zucchini.
