Maybe Passiflora lutea (does it have small, yellow-green flowers?)

Collierville, TN

It has very tiny yellow 5-petalled flowers at the axils
I cut open one of the black fruit and it has at least 12 yellowish seeds among the greenish pulp
The fruits are about 1/2" long and about 1/4" across

Flower looks like a cucurbit so probably Melothria pendula.
