Wild Cucumber (Echinocystis lobata)

By Toobi_Won
Wild cucumber or Echinocystis lobata, being checked for ripeness.

I cannot put my finger on it but this image has disquieting echoes, for some reason, of an embarrassing medical examination I was subjected to when young.Sad

It would certainly make me wild if I bit into that, Mike.

This reminds me of when a female nurse checked me out before I could book in for a vasectomy. (When I was 27) Smile
No more sewing wild seeds from my cucumber.Wink

I shall not ask intimate questions. But my first thoughts on opening this were definitely not horticultural. Blush

I could swap stories with you re this, John like the scene from Jaws, where they boast about the bite scars and where they got them.
Stories involving a home shave, "male" nurses, no working weighing scale ast the hospital, general anesthetic and a theater nurse who was an ex girlfriend Sad
