Identify my pumpkins

The pumpkin patch is starting to mature
Suspect this one will become a crown pumpkin, any comments on that?

The Kumi Kumi or Kamo Kamo is producing well

Pumpkin Kumi Kumi

  • Botanical Name: Cucurbita pepo
The Maori Kamo Kamo or Kumi Kumi Marrow or Pumpkin is green and ribbed, growing approximately 1 to 1.5 kg and 30cm long. Can be used fresh as an ordinary marrow but when fully matured the skin dries and hardens, making this vegetable suitable for winter storing.
Matures 110 days from transplant.
