Can anyone identify this vine?

I have a vine that keeps popping up in my yard. I typically am able to pull it up before it gets too big. I let one go for a few weeks and was shocked to see these large pods growing on it. Anyone know what it is??

When I saw the picture it made me think of the little vines that come up all over my yard with "mouse melons" on them. Melothria Scabra is the botanical name. They don't have a pointed end but may be another cultivar. The leaves look the same.
Do they smell like cucumbers ?
