This vine is growing over everything in the forest behind my land in the Texas Hill Country. I wish I had pictures of it when it flowered but just noticed it. The pods look very much like a cucumber but have a milky-white liquid coming from the stem end when cut and the pods are hard, woody and full of seeds. It seems to be pretty invasive.
SOLVED: Vine with strange seed pods
it almost resembles a milkweed.I believe part of the solanum family.that would be my best guess.
I have no idea what it is but I love those variegated leaves! Can't wait to hear what it is!
Can't help but to ask more
about your plant, I'm thoroughly interested!
When you say the pods are woody and full of seeds, could
you tell us more about the seeds? Are they flat and papery,
fluffy and feathery, etc?
I've this vine on my woodland backyard. Last year I've seen one seedpod. But so far this year I havn't yet. The leaves on mine aren't variegated. And the seedpod is smaller about the side of an okra, pictures above appear as big as a small cucumber? So far I haven't seen much straying seedlings, but when I do. Weed-b-gone will be needed. The seedpods are interesting though.
