Delicata squash hybrid?

14 years ago

This year as an afterthought I planted some three year old Delicata squash seeds from a squash I had bought at the grocery store. The plants grew well and I got a pretty good harvest of this tasty squash. What was peculiar was that the squash on one of the plants were the same color as the regular Delicata, but a different shape, almost like acorn squash, but not quite. I am thinking maybe this is a hybrid, and that maybe the farm where the parent squash was growing had Delicata and maybe Acorn squash growing next to each other and they were cross-pollinated? Is this a plausible explanation? What do you think?
