That is a widespread plant that grows all over the south. The picture is of a type or variety called Balsam Gourd, Snake Apple, Globe Berry and other names as well. It is more of a nuisance plant than anything else. Its fruit isn't poisonous nor is it edible. When I was a kid we had wars with the hard little fruits.
