The plant label is long gone and l can't remember what this is. I think it is in the



Cucurbitaceae family.


Thanks . Smiling

My first thought was possibly Bitter Gourd (Momordica charantia) but the leaves don't look right for that one.

How about "Ivy Gourd" - Coccinia quinqueloba? http://www.bihrmann.com/caudiciforms/SUBS/coc-qui-sub.asp
