Squash question - update

Hi all,
Thanks to everybody who responded to my query about the squashes which were supposed to be butternuts, but clearly weren't. We're happy calling them the Buttercup/Kabocha type.
Anyway, we went down to the allotment today and brought them home with us. The plant was showing signs of a touch of frost,which was confirmed by the adjacent householders, although we've had no frost at home only 2 miles away. Also we're going to be a bit busy in the next few weeks, so home they came. There are a couple of pics of them here -

25 in the pics, plus about 5 or 6 small ones left on the plants just in case they do anything, and a couple given away already. 30+ from 2 plants, not bad, no?

Steve, have you tried any of them? How do they taste?
I'm not suggesting that you did this, but I used seeds once I had saved from a prior years planting and got some strange results. From then on I have never planted seeds that may have been cross-pollinated, unless it happened while the seed company had them.

No, I'm not sure of anything anymore :-))
The main reason for my original post on 08/09 was to ask if anyone knew. The consensus of what others posted and from the sites they posted links to, was that they were most likely Buttercup/Kabocha type ... Ish. It doesn't bother me enough to get worked up about, I get the impression that identification of squashes generally is open to some interpretation.
We haven't tasted them yet, but will later this week.
Again, thanks to all who responded.
