Some folks do funny things with the native plants on their property. I could not pass the opportunity to share it on iNat.
This species is normally in the desert, but there are coastal populations in San Diego.
The fruit looks kinda like a cucumber.
San Diego County, California, US
Common across the bajada below the Spring Mountains at Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, Clark Co., Nevada, USA.
None seen in flower on this date.
There were on the order of 5 clumps of this species in highly degraded coastal sage scrub on clay soil in the lower slopes of the canyon.
