I hope this one should be Cucumis pebuscens differenciated by globose fruits usually not with very dark patches. It is supposed to be less bitter and after soaking in salt water can be eaten like cucumber. Seeds are employed in herpes. I hope some member can throw light on identity of this plant. This plant seems to be similar to one uploaded by Nidhan ji.
