what is this vine?

I got this from a Vietnamese grocer's in Brisbane. The Vietnamese name is written on it. It has round yellow fruit. Does anyone know what it is? I thought a type of passionfruit but the lady who sold it didn't seem to agree.

Did you try Google Translate? It could be a Bitter Melon you never know your luck?

It looks like the pot label says gac.
That could be Gac Fruit, which is another topic on this forum

Thanks very much jakfruit etiquette and markmelb. That's exciting, those are both plants I didn't have.
The leaves do look a little bit more like the bitter melon picture to me (some tiny spikes at the scalloped edges) but the seller said the fruit was round and the Vietnamese words for bitter melon are apparently 'Muop dang or kho qua', so maybe it is gac.

It is a bitter melon and that variety is a small fruiting one.I believe the balsam pear is either the same species or a close relative.
