So I decided to take up gardening and went to the town Nursery and bought a couple plants. I grabbed one that was suppose to be pumpkin but now that it's growing it does not look like pumpkin and more like squash? Am I right? If so what kind of squash is it? Thanks.

Welcome!

Maybe Golden Hubbard Squash

Possibly - but the Golden Hubbard that I've grown for years is much more orange in color, not yellow.

I assumed it wasn't ripe yet.

Welcome! Addiebaby.

It still could be a type of pumpkin. Other than that the next thing that comes to mind is an ornamental gourd.

I guess you can't go back to the town nursery and see if there are any other plants that are marked with photo tags?

There was a tag on the pot that was pumpkin I guess someone must have swapped it around.

Mine go directly from green to bright orange.

There's always a possibility that it's the result of some kind of accidental cross.
