Ivy Gourd can be distinguished by its five-point, palm-shaped leaves. White, star-shaped flowers distinguish this weed from other vines. These white flowers give way to small, green, pickle-sized fruits which eventually turn scarlet in color. The fruit is edible and resembles sweet-and-sour cucumber with fresh flavor. Best eaten when fruit are not quite ripe (green).
