For squash not meeting a stated minimum size reaquirement, there is a tolerance of 5%. And your question about squash being bigger than usual, there is a 10% tolerance for squash not meeting a stated maximum size.

Now if you are asking what the maximum size specs are for “medium” squash, there are no reqirements that I am aware of. There are no size requirements for medium or any size squash in the U.S. Grade Standard.

If a buyer and seller agree to a minimum and/or maximum size spec, the two would then follow the tolerances allowed for each, 5% for undersize and 10% for oversize. But this would only come into play if the agreement was reached before the product was shipped. Hope this helps.
