Can anyone tell me what this plant is? When it first started to grow we thought it was a volunteer gourd or melon. But it now looks tree-like.
See it has a stalk. And so for has grown 5 feet in Height.
Here is the seed pods that are growing on it. They have blossomed a yellow flower. Someone had suggested that it was a poppy plant. Yet it doesn't have that tissue like petal on it. Almost like a melon flower. The stalk and leaves feel as though they are covered in a very old and tattered velvet.Another reason I am asking is because I found this pod below in a can of store bought green beans. I wrote to the company about it and they said it was a morning glory. I have never seen a morning glory like this before. And even though the company attempted to poison me, they also attempted to shut me up with a coupon for free green beans. Like that will earn my loyalty.

I found it. It's called a Velvet leaf or an Indian Mallow. Doesn't seem to be dangerous. Picture below is from the K State web site.
