Candy or Fruit

The other day when I visited the park  I found this vine on a neighboring hedge. It looked so round and pretty like candy. At first I thought it was ivy gourd ( a vegetable we eat all the time), but this looked different.

On closer examination the leaves looked a wee bit different  and so did the vine. The ivy gourd has woody vines and thicker leaves that look very much like ivy. The fruits of the ivy gourd are longer and much bigger never so round and cute.

It could be a close cousin of the Ivy gourd but the fruits remained on the vine, parrots which are aplenty in the park wouldn’t leave them alone if they were indeed ivy gourd.

I loved the look of these and got several pictures of them.
