Burcucumber (Sicyos angulatus)

Summer annual broadleaf

Burcucumber Burcucumber
Burcucumber

A summer annual climbing vine that closely resembles cucumber plants, especially during the early stages of growth. Vining stems are hairy especially at the leaf nodes, longitudinally ridged, and climb by way of branched tendrils. Cotyledons closely resemble those of ordinary cucumber cotyledons and are thick and oblong, with many spreading hairs on the top and bottom. Mature leaves are alternate, 2 to 8 inches long, 2 to 8 inches wide and hairy, with five pointed lobes and a toothed margin. Flowers are whitish to green and inconspicuous. Fruit is produced in clusters of 3 to 20 and resembles small cucumbers covered with long bristles.
