Bitter Melon, Big Top

87% of 100

65 days. A unique heart-shaped variety of bitter melon, easy to prepare and with a milder flavor. The large, softball-sized fruit is an early producer. The long, rambling vines produce tons of smooth skinned, dark green, bumpy fruit. Thanks to a slightly thicker skin, this variety is considered an excellent shipper and a perfect choice for gardeners wanting to grow bitter melon for the first time. Fruit ranges from 4-6 inches across. A favorite for stuffed bitter melon recipes! This wonderful Chinese heirloom is always a favorite in our gardens.
