Melothria pendula

A.k.a. Creeping Cucumber or Guadaloupe Cucumber, this little plant is like a miniature version of a mexican sour gherkin, which itself looks like a miniature watermelon. Native to the southeast US. Perennial. It showed up outside the Southern Exposure office door like it was asking me to save its seeds. Shown here climbing on an elderberry bush.
