Mystery plant??? name that vine

It all started when a friend of my Mother gave her some seed, that in turn had been given to her by a friend, and just like the old whisper game “pass it on” by the time mom got the seeds we had no idea what kind of vine they would grow.

Fast forward a few weeks and the seeds planted at the base of the mailbox have grown into a rambling vine, and we still have no idea what kind of plant it is. It has pitiful little flowers that look a lot like egg-plant flowers.

And when the flower dries, it’s replaced by this vegetable/fruit thingy. What in the world is it? Maybe a gourd?

You all did so well helping me figure out my last vine conundrum, to refresh you memory  click here, so I’m putting my faith in you again dear readers. I know your mystery solving skills will once again prevail!

I can’t wait to hear what you come up with on this one.
