A classification of cultivated C. pepo varieties based on Paris' eight groups and the one non-edible variety
Cultivar group Botanical name Image Description
Acorn C. pepo var. turbinata   Winter squash, both a shrubby and creeping plant, obovoid or conical shape, pointed at the apex and with longitudinal grooves, thus resembling a spinning top,[3] ex: Acorn squash[4][5][6]
Cocozzelle C. pepo var. Ionga   Summer squash, long round slender fruit that is slightly bulbous at the apex,[3] similar to fastigata, ex: Cocozelle von tripolis[4][5][6]
Crookneck C. pepo var. torticollia (also torticollis)   Summer squash, shrubby plant, with yellow, golden, or white fruit which is long and curved at the end and generally has a verrucose (wart-covered) rind,[3] ex: Crookneck squash[4][5][6]
Pumpkin C. pepo var. pepo
Winter squash, creeping plant, round, oblate, or oval shape and round or flat on the ends,[3] ex: Pumpkin;[4][5][6] includes C. pepo subsp. pepo var. styriaca, used for Styrian pumpkin seed oil[7]
Scallop C. pepo var. clypeata; called C. melopepo by Linnaeus[8]   Summer squash, prefers half-shrubby habitat, flattened or slightly discoidal shape, with undulations or equatorial edges,[3] ex: Pattypan squash[4][5][6]
Straightneck C. pepo var. recticollis   Summer squash, shrubby plant, with yellow or golden fruit and verrucose rind, similar to var. torticollia but a stem end that narrows,[3] ex: Straightneck squash[4][5][6]
Vegetable marrow C. pepo var. fastigata   Summer and winter squashes, creeper traits and a semi-shrub, cream to dark green color, short round fruit with a slightly broad apex,[3] ex: Spaghetti squash (a winter variety)[4][5][6]
Zucchini/Courgette C. pepo var. cylindrica   Summer squash, presently the most common group of cultivars, origin is recent (19th century), semi-shrubby, cylindrical fruit with a mostly consistent diameter,[3] similar to fastigata, ex: Zucchini[4][5][6]
Ornamental gourds C. pepo var. ovifera   Non-edible,[9] field squash closely related to C. texana, vine habitat, thin stems, small leaves, three sub-groups: C. pepo var. ovifera (egg-shaped, pear-shaped), C. pepo var. aurantia (orange color), and C. pepo var. verrucosa (round warty gourds), ornamental gourds found in Texas and called var. texana and ornamental gourds found outside of Texas (Illinois, Missouri, Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Louisiana) are called var. ozarkana.[10]
