If the turn yellow when they mature, the shape reminds me of butternut squash.

I did see from my online research the shape resembles butternut squash. I'm just concerned about when I should harvest. I would hate for them to become overrippend. Some have started to lose their stripes and turn white. And, the vine reaches out and roots along the ground.

They look like butternut squash, they stay on the vine until after the first frosts when the vine dies.

You can eat them like summer squash if you pick them when their skins are soft. But don't eat the seeds.
