Have you seen the flower? There's also another vine that pops up in my garden sometimes.

No Linda, it was not blooming but after doing a little more searching I have concluded that you are right. It is Melothria pendula Thank you.

Glad I could help! The little fruit is edible, but might have a laxative effect. I don't mind it popping up, since it's a native!

I plan on trying to collect some of the seeds and start it in a more conspicuous location.
