Winter Squash

Sweet with surprise

We ran across Sweet Dumpling seeds a few years ago and were delighted by the sweet, dry fruit. These squash don't take up much garden space as the vines climb our fence. It's the earliest winter squash to ripen in our northeastern PA garden and I learned not to hoard them by losing a few to spoilage in mid-winter. This year I planted saved seeds and was surprised when most of the vines produced large, long white ribbed squash. Can anyone tell me the parentage to which my seeds might have reverted?
