I tried a wild cucumber called Melothria Pendula.

For years, on our morning walks, I’ve seen these cucumber plants… a slender vine with pretty yellow flowers and tiny cucumber-like fruits. I finally remembered to look up if they’re edible, and they are! But only the light green ones. So this morning I tried a small one. Unfortunately, it didn’t agree with me. But then again, neither do normal cucumbers, so what can I expect from a fruit that is described as “The Mother of all Laxatives”? Trav thought that might happen! :p Perhaps the one I got was too ripe.

Here’s the page where I found the info on its edibility:
