Wild Cucumber

Echinocystis lobata


The dried up fruits were similar to Luffa AKA loofah( what some people use for a body scrubber), with the hollow center and the veiny remnants. The flowers were a bit fuzzy looking, and the vines took over large areas as you can see in the last photo.


Near a parking lot for a beach.
