The Q&A Archives: Unidentified Melon

Question: I had a plant begin growing in my yard and it looked like a watermelon plant so I decided to leave it. Now several weeks later it has stickers on the vine and leaves and the small developing fruit are also covered with stickers like a wild cucumber. And it has yellow flowers. I was just wondering if you knew what kind of plant I have.

Answer: To solve the mystery, here's a website with an excellent picture of wild cucumber. Hope it helps!
