    Default Are these watermelon berries?

    We have these all over our yard and were wondering what they were. We think we've narrowed it down to watermelon berries based on the leaves. Can anyone confirm? Thanks in advance.

    I have always called them watermelon berries, as have others I know, but after looking them up in an identification guide I found them listed as cucumber berries. I eat them whenever I encounter them, I find them refreshing.
