squash growing

please can anyone help(and possibly save my marriage!).Can anyone please tell me what baby squash look like?I`m a first time grower,pollination has obviously occurred as fruit are starting to develop.My husband says they look like courgettes (zucchini),but I say because they are from the gourd family,they are just immature squash.Who is correct?

Many thanks

Hi Trish,

Many, many varieties of immature squash actually resemble the mature fruit. This goes for acorn, butternut, and most of the 'summer' squash, including zucchini.
What type of squash did you plant?
