Does anyone know the name of the squash plant that grows tall-upright on a stem instead of as a sprawling vine?

The leaves are large and fuzzy and you can sauté the leaves.

What else... The leaves are delicious, have not eaten the squash itself, but I'm guessing you boil or roast it thempn purée

summer squashs grow on upright bush type plants.

I don`t know about eating the leaves as i`m not a squash lover.

The buds look like little cups and the squash looks like a huge green pumpkin. Could it be a type of Asian buttercup? I can't seem to get a plant ID

Weird, they never produced anything. I guess it was too shady where they came up. Should have transplanted them. The leaves were good though.
