Fruit


Got this as a gift from a friend, it's grown some fruit, which has ridges and a slightly fuzzy skin. What is it? Is it a kind of squash or melon? When should it be harvested? Please help.

Available at most seed merchants but I get mine from Seeds of Italy. I grow mine in a polytunnel and it will reach 18-20 ft in length/height and produce 15-20 long fruits.
