    This isn’t watermelon. It is something in the bindweed, morning glory family ( Convolvulaceae ). I’m not certain of the genus or species and can only speculating here. To my eyes this perhaps might be a species in the Ipomoea genus? Copy & paste these included link for information for some of the species in the genus. The one below is for the Littebells ( Ipomoea triloba) image. Not having the plant in person, I could be wrong in my speculation. The calyx’s sepals is one of the Ipomoea diagnostic key. Best wishes!
