    Have you cut one of these fruits open? I wonder if it might be passiflora?

    Sorry, no idea. Can you take one to the local extension office?

    wrong vine for a passiflora, perhaps a pear of some kind.

    Looks like a creeping fig. When you see them in a nursery, they have cute little innocent round leaves about 3/8 of an inch long. plant them in the ground and they get happy and will develop oval leaves up to 2 inches long . Some will fruit given enough time . the fruit isn't very tasty, although, some animals (rats) will eat it.

      @Marcia Figs can grow to 30 ft high and fruit with abundance if left alone . You can also have fruit in container figs too.

    Yes it is a creeping fig. The plant has to get so large to put on 'fruit'. It is not, I believe edible. You can avoid the fruit by keeping it trimmed.

    I looked it up and it's said it is edible, but not very good. Usually it's just juiced and doctored up to make it more palatable.

      @Valery Figs can be eaten and are very good. They are full of sugar and lots of seeds. My mother used to love them right off the tree! Fig butter is wonderful too!

    Lisa, these are not from a fig tree. The creeping fig is a vine and the figs are different
