Satsuma Plant?

hello, my mum gave me a little satsuma plant she started to grow from the seed of the fruit. She gave it to me at about 5-10cm tall and since then it has blossomed. I’m trying to find out what type of satsuma plant it is so that I can learn more information about it. She doesn’t know what type it is and I haven’t found anything on Google just yet.

its a climber and goes in a zig zag shape. Will try and attach some photos.

thanks in advance :smile:

    that's not a Satsuma.
    It's a Marrow/Cucumber/Melon type plant

    Oh she said it was a satsuma - the cucumber plant looks similar but the leaf shape is not quite the same. The leaves I’ve got are fuzzy as well but the cucumber looks smooth

    It's that family, the leaves and flowers are most distinctive. No way it's a citrus fruit

    Yeah I do agree it looks like the same family. There are no vines on it though and the flowers are different to the cucumber. Might just have to see what it grows!

    you'll have to grow it on, it might be something really exciting :) Somebody will probably be able to say which one it is

    Looks like melon. I have lots always come up from seeds in the compost.
