"Wild cucumber" vines, inquiry. #364972
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
These species are related in so far as they are all members of the gourd family or Cucurbitaceae.
