This vine started coming up as a volunteer in my garden. At first I thought it was a watermelon vine, but as the fruit started growing, I noticed they had spikes. Any ideas?
I thought maybe it was wild cucumber, but the leaves don’t match. Other ideas from Google are Cucumis africanus, bitter melon, or paddy melon, but they are not from this area.
