The Accidental Cucurbit

Somehow it found itself in the same pot as our papaya-mango?

Guess who?

We thought it was a pumpkin but when the first flowers appeared, uh uh. Looks like a cucumber flower! Anyone want to hazard a guess?

  1. Hmm, the flower looks like it could be watermelon but the leaves aren’t like watermelon plants – those are more palmate. It’s probably some kind of melon. This will be fun to watch!

  2. Do you think it is a watermelon???

    In my limited experience, the cucumber leaves are smaller (but the flower is that size in the photo); the watermelon leaves are larger (like your photo) and the flowers are small (like your photo).

    Let’s see what the other gardeners say!
