I got this plant covering my whole garden. Last year i planted different types of squash, so I first though it'd be from these squashes, but unfortunately doesn't seem alike... It's really tall, probably 20ft long and the baby fruit has soft spikes. Could you help me?

Welcome! to NGA

Its a wild cucumber. No, not edible.
