Asked September 22, 2016, 10:13 PM EDT

Good evening, UMN Extension! I please was wondering if Echinocystis lobata & "Bar cucumber" are related in any way to the "wild cucumber/manroot" of the Marah genus? Thank you very much, Cindi Andersen

Le Sueur County Minnesota

Expert Response

These species are related in so far as they are all members of the gourd family or Cucurbitaceae.
