Is it fruiting yet Jane?
I have a mystery plant come up in another strange spot myself. It could be a Loofah....
Still guessing, not cucumber as they also have small yellow flowers & these are white flowers with heart shaped leaves. a few years ago I grew some ordermental Gourds perhaps a seed has just germinated from the compost. Will let you know if anything develops.
The flower looks white? in this pic, or was it yellow?
The plain green leaf looks very much like Winter Melon which gets a yellow flower. Can't remember sending you any seed myself and the stem looks too frail to be a WM which is normally hairy. So don't think it's that. Below are the WM male (top) and female flowers.
I don't know
Yes, the female flowers of cucurbits have an embryo of the fruit at the base of the flower. Have you grown Luffas? I'm not familiar with their leaves. And btw, a young choko which would fit into the palm of my hand, was the sweetest I've ever eaten, just chopped and stir-fried. Yummmm. Way sweeter than the bigger ones so I know what size to pick now. Sensational ;-)
No i dont think its a choko Elaine, if it was I would be able to find the shoot growing out of a choko, also we dont like choko so have never had them on the property. I will just have to wait & see if it produces any female flowers as presume these on long stems are male?
Choko? Hm but the single flower doesn't look right.
