We found this vegetable, apparently a gourd of some sort, growing at a farm in Michigan, but we're not sure which particular species it could be. It seems to most closely resemble an acorn squash, but the star-shaped spike pattern on the outside does not appear to match. Other types of squash, such as butternut, are too different in color scheme and shape.

Does anyone know what this unidentified vegetable could be?

It seems to be related the the squash in some way. It may be a gourd because of its odd shape and the two unrelated colors.
