Name That Vine Fruit!

What is that?  Really!  I actually want to know!

We saw this crazy looking vine with strange orange fruit growing on it while walking in our neighborhood.  I think I've figured out what it is, but I thought I'd see if anyone else actually knew what it was.  

For our first ever contest, please submit your answer (factual or crazy creative) to our "Name That Vine Fruit Official Contest" in the comments section.  Vote early and often for the chance to win an exciting gift basket (likely a USPS box) from Paris filled with random stuff we like that we don't think you can get in the US. 

We haven't decided how to choose the winner.  Perhaps we'll pick our favorites and draw the winner out of a hat.  Or maybe we'll consult the Magic 8 Ball.  

Happy voting!

Your first picture makes me think of kumquats, but they are more of a tree/shrub critter and less of a vine critter...or so I thought. Also, I've never seen a less mature green one, so I don't know if it is consistent with the second pic or not...Hmmmm.

Nope. Much bigger than a kumquat. I'd pick one and cut it open if I didn't think some old French woman would yell at me! (I did see an old woman across the street whacking plums off a tree with her cane. But she was cursing and waving her cane like a madwoman so I figure no one would dare yell at her!) Maybe the kids and I will walk up there and try to abscond with one. I'll make the Girl carry it home so she looks like the guilty party. He he he.
