Locally there are some kind of climbing cactus way up trees - I had one growing on a trellis over the front door in Briz. Superb scent to the flower but no fruit - may not have been a fruiting variety or it did not get pollinated. Currently I pollinate mine usually and get around 90 percent fruit, non-hand-pollinated is about the same ;-) My plants came from fruiting plants.
This blog may be helpful or confusing ;-) I could not squeeze the hard green developing fruit. Don't know why they turn yellow - not pollinated or the plant cannot support it for two guesses - but going on my first experience with them, they just don't develop.
That won't be a fruit :-( I've had 2 such and they just wither and die. If you're going to get fruit, the fruit-end stays green and just gently swells. The flower withers and stays on until the fruit is almost ripe. A couple that I pollinated did what yours have done. I did threaten my non-fruiters with the rubbish bin though … ;-)
