I'm looking to plant both a C.pepo and C.maxima in my garden this year, with an eye to saving seed. However, I'd like to know if they are going to cross polinate and give me unpredictable results. If not, I may restrict myself to only the C.pepo this year.
Thanks for any help!
I Is your growing season long enough to grow them consecutively rather than spontaneously? Or at least space out the planting times so they aren't blooming at the same time? Or hand pollinate a blossom then screen it off so it is isolated?
