November 3, 2017

Location: Titusville, Enchanted Forest

This is Creeping Cucumber,
Melothria pendula is it's scientific name.
The tiny watermelon-shaped fruit is edible when it's young,
But when the fruit's older and darker, it's not the same!

Special thanks to Jim Stahl for his confirmation on the ID of this plant!
