Hello Ori,
In first glance I thought it's "Trichosanthes dioica"; a well known vegetable of Bangladesh as well as India.
Well captured this melons. Haven't seen before.
Thanks for sharing,

Hello Ori,
Great shot of this young melon which grows in the wild. From your thumbnail image I thought it was a gooseberry. Nicely framed while showing excellent detail and rich colors. I like the vertical composition and your exposure is just right. Well done!!
