This is just for fun... and I don't know the answer right this moment.



What plant did this come from?

It is 1.5" long, bright orange with a soft spiky texture. I don't have a picture of the plant because the whole field got mowed down yesterday and this little guy managed to escape the blades.

It's likely a South West Florida weed.

What is it?
Keep calm... and plant something.

Looks like Momordica charantia.

That's what my Google-fu said too!
Thanks!
