Pumpkin On A Stick

Well not really!  About 2 inchies in diameter, with green fuzzy leaves, and very firm, it is from the eggplant family.   Viewed usually as an ornamental it is eatible and the leaves have proven to have an anti-inflammatory benefit.  Julie Barns grew them in her garden this year and brought in a bunch to share with the members.  The botanical name is solanum integrifolium.   Just in case you want to look it up.
