where tindora aka ivy gourd invasive in Texas?

I'm not googling the right terms. Can anyone say where in Texas tindora, or ivy gourd, has become invasive? Does it have a northern or western boundary beyond which it will not invade due to cold or lack of water? Thank you.

Merry, sorry you didn't get an answer to your question. I didn't even know what tindora was until I looked it up on google.

Here is a link that might be useful: About tindora on google ... with lots of recipes ...

I googled too and found nothing specific to areas of Texas.

Thank you all for the help. Someone posted on wikipedia some time back that tindora is invasive in Texas, Florida, and-- I think-- Hawaii, but the article didn't include which areas of Texas and Florida were at risk. The usda invasives site and the tamu site don't seem to include tindora as invasive. But I may not be using those sites correctly.
