Javan cucumber Seeds

Alsomitra macrocarpa


These seeds were bigger than my hand. The plant is a gourd-bearing liane, belonging to the pumpkin family from the tropical Asian forests of the Malay Archipelago and the Indonesian islands.

Love all your pictures! I came across Project Noah as I was looking for an image of Javan Cucumber Seeds I could use in a lesson plan on seeds and how they utilize different dispersal methods to prosper.

I'm a co-founder of, a company which provides hands-on learning tools for teachers that they can 3D print and utilize in the classroom. We offer access to our full library through a subscription service (as opposed to selling individual items or lesson plans). We have a 3D model of a javan cucumber seed, but would love to include an image with the lesson plan as well.

Can we use this one as long as we include the link to the original source? Thank you for your time!
