Bangkok Hybrid large fruited Bitter Melon or Bitter Gourd (5 seeds Pr Pkt)

This tropical, annual vine has a bitter taste and is used in, soup, curry, and salads. (If you don’t like the bitter taste, parboil with salt and rinse 2-3 times before cooking.) The Thais believe that Momordica charantia is very good for the kidneys and blood. Grow under glass or in a polytunnel like a cucumber vine. This new large fruited hybrid has early to medium fruit maturity on vigorous plants. The fruits (8” to 15” long) are set mostly on the lateral vines similar to Gourd plants.
