Found climbing way up a pine tree and over to adjacent large bushes with these cucumber-like things hanging down that were about 18 inches to two feet long. Never, ever saw anything like this before. Can’t find anything about it on the internet either. There were no such vegetables growing nearby, not cucumbers nor squash nor gourds, nothing like these.

    YES, that is it!!! Thanks! It sure does go through a metamorphosis, doesn’t it! I don’t know if the pods will ripen before frost (turn tan color). Hope to harvest the seeds. Vicki of Sandy Springs
