A couple of weeks ago I planted some seeds of different fruits that I ate. Some didn't make it and some did, however, I lost track on this one and don't remember what this plant is.

Here are some pictures.

    Do you remember the list of the options (which fruits you ate)?

    And I can exclude apple and pear.

    The leaf shape is not right for either a papaya or a pear, for one thing. Your plant doesn't look like a young tree - it looks more vine-like, which makes me think kiwi is the most likely of the ones you listed. I only have experience with hardy kiwi, and those do not have shiny leaves like these, so I'm not certain. Are you certain there aren't any other possibilities?

    Since when I took this picture it has sprouted more bud like stuff. I'll send updated pix tonight

    Now that you're mentioned hardy kiwi I did plant seeds from different kiwis could possibly be that but I'll wait to see what you think about the new pix

It's a kiwi.

Unfortunately, the best matching picture I can find can't be linked to or copied.


I know it's not one of the ones you listed, but I really don't think it's any of those, to be quite honest. It looks just like an indoor pepper to me (Capsicum annuum), and probably a sweet bell pepper, at that. The leaves are kind of curling, though. I grew peppers this last fall/winter/spring that looked like that (sans the downward curling). They're outside, now.

Here are some pictures that look pretty close (these aren't mine, though; note that they're both of indoor peppers, and not outdoor ones):
