Freaky food!

I was wondering in Coles yesterday, as usual doing my groceries shopping, when I come upon this very weird-looking unusual food! Or rather, should I say vegetables, since it's in the vegetable section!!

I was thinking: 'what the heck is that? Looks plastic-ky to me! Like some kinda toy that children play, and when they drop onto the floor it will bounds up! LOL.. Looks like some UFO.. and it can be eaten?' Haha.. I was extremely puzzled by it. The label was written 'yellow squash'. Hmm.. probably I'm a country pumpkin (or rather city rat since if I'm from the country, I would be doing farming and know all these veg)!

Not satisfied with just knowing that it's called yellow squash, I went home to do some search online. It's actually not call yellow squash! This is button squash, or what the proper term should be: pattypan. What a strange name for a strange veg! Quite apt huh.? And, that Coles shouldn't put it in the veg section, cos it's considered to be a fruit scientifically! Cool! And there are many types of squash! Turban squash, sweet potato squash, acorn squash, spaghetti squash and many more! Just how many squash are there!!!LOL
