Actually, just one. You may find it in the store in slightly different shapes and colors, but that's just a result of how this summer squash is grown. Its scientific name is Cucurbita pepo, a species that also includes Acorn squash, Gem squash, Pattypan squash, some kinds of Pumpkin, Spaghetti squash, Yellow crookneck squash and Yellow summer squash.

If you mean named varieties of the cylindical summer squash usually referred to as zucchini, then there are dozens of open pollinated and hybrid cultivars available. Some of the most popular ones are Black Beauty, Blackjack, and Golden.
