Odd squash

I had this down as a cucumber but now I have doubts. Maybe some kind of lemon cuke? The fruit was actually stuck in the plastic bottle used for watering! I had to break the bottle to get it out. Any ideas on what this is??? The plant:
The fruit:
And a baby fruit just forming:
Trouble is, as I am unsure of what it is, I don't know whether or not to pick it!!!

A forum buddy tells me this is an Italian cucumber melon! So those were the strange seeds I found! I will pick it tonight as this is a good size for it, it seems. It is popular in Italy and tastes like both a cucumber and a melon! It is called a Corsello there I think.
