Notes:

I thought it was a cantaloupe seed. But as it grew it obviously wasn’t. It grew tall, and I thought it might be a sunflower or something similar. However the flowers were small and almost orange, and then the flower turned into a small green fruit with little spikes – although they are soft. Any ideas?

    Looks like Velvetleaf. FAST growing weed and invasive.
