        It is a shortened version of the original Algonquin word according to a short search on the etymology of the word.

        squash (n.1)

        gourd fruit, 1640s, shortened borrowing from Narraganset (Algonquian) askutasquash, literally “the things that may be eaten raw,” from askut “green, raw, uncooked” + asquash “eaten,” in which the -ash is a plural affix (compare succotash).
