If it is, indeed, Leaf Curl Virus then it will likely not produce anything. You will need to destroy the plant and you will likely have a problem growing any member from the Cucurbitacea family in that spot.

If you have a fruit that is recognizable as a fruit still, then it may be another problem that is treatable. I cannot confirm without a picture, but there are many treatable issues that can resemble virus damage, which is not treatable.
