Did you know that insects are the ones to blame or thank for those bizarre looking like squashes of different shapes and colors?. All of the squash family blossoms are pollinated by insects, and they are responsible for cross-pollination with each other. Pollen from the flower of one variety of squash can get transported via insect to a different kind of squash where it can fertilize that plant. The squash that grow from these plants will still resemble that what you initially planted.
