This Chinese variety produces nice-sized, 8-inch green-skinned, curiously bumpy fruit. The plants yield well and are attractive in the landscape, having deeply cut leaves, bright yellow flowers and developing fruits—very effective on trellises and arbors! Bitter melon is a traditional staple in much of Asia; local cuisines appreciate the mildly bitter taste in soups and curries. As a bonus, the pulp surrounding the seeds turns brilliant scarlet at full maturity, and its sweet taste is also utilized in its native lands. Bitter melon is recognized for its value in blood-sugar regulation among diabetics.

What are the pros? leaves can be eaten also.

What are the cons? Sometimes very bitter.

Review:

Bitterness of the fruit can be reduced by rubbing and washing with salt. The leaves can also be eaten as salad with tomatoes/onions and a little vinegar. More importantly,both are great against bad cholesterol.
