DW purchased a packet of seeds that was marked mixed winter squash. We got a few different varieties and We are not squash experts. Some help with identifying them and if they are ripe.

the one in the middle is a Sweet Dumpling Squash, the one on the left looks like an Acorn Squash crossed with something else. the one on the right looks like a SDS crossed with something else.

I have only been tempted to grow the Sweet Dumpling and that looks like it. My one good crop of (relative) Delicata was so good that, I think, I tried 3 more seasons for a repeat.

Anyway, they look like they are probably all C. pepo squashes.

Collector, please let us know about how the plants did and the flavor of the squash.

It almost looks like "mixed" could refer to crossed/impure seed. Was this from a seed company? I agree that the squash in the center looks like Sweet Dumpling, and the one on the right could be as well. The one on the left resembles an acorn, but the color is wrong.
