This is a discussion on Help Identify this vine? within the Survival Food Procurement forums, part of the Off-Grid Lifestyle category; So the wife got a lot of starters given to her. This one lost the label, we think it is a pumpkin, but are not ...
Not sure. I think it takes a long time to grow a pumpkin. Too late to plant it aint it? Its time to get those turnip seeds in the ground and go pluck a few all winter when you get to craving turnips. Something is missing in this equation. Thanks.

looks like a cucumber to me

Whatever it is, happy eating! Hope it's good.

I agree, probably a cucumber.
Pumpkin or most any type of squash would have much bigger flowers
When it does develop 'fruit', please let us know what it is
Cucumber. Also looks like it might have a touch of powdery mildew. Need to spray it with a fungicide of some sort. Safer would work well. https://www.amazon.com/Safer-Brand-O.../dp/B000G9TXYE. Neem oil would work too.
Looks like cuke to me too. Small flowers and serrated small leaves.
What climate zone are you in? We have a little more than a month before worrying about frosts.
I will order some on Friday.
Last years cukes came on fast, making little babies and then getting fat like a balloon. They were ugly.
We will see.
