    I don't know the scientific name for it but it is a vine similar to a gourd vine and the fruit is orange and bumpy and when it is ripe it splits and has red seed inside. I'm trying to find someone who will let me have some seeds for next year. thanks

    I don't have any seeds to give you, but the scientific name is Momordica charantia.
