I'm not sure if she bought seedlings, or planted seeds, but they were labeled cucumbers. The vegetable/fruit? that is growing now does NOT look like a cucumber. Here's
another pic. The first one is pear shaped, the other more deformed, and obviously they are growing on the ground. The first appears to have a vine-like stem. We have speculated perhaps some sort of squash, but it doesn't look familiar, and there are no flowers.
Anybody know what this is? Completely different plant? Strange type of cucumber? Deformed/ diseased regular cucumber? Do cucumbers normally start out yellow?
