Ganjyu Bitter Melon

94% of 100

An extra-large, light green heirloom from Japan. Fruits are uniform with a great flavor. Bitter melon is a crutial dietary staple on the island of Okinawa where great health and record-breaking longevity have been partly attributed to healthy diet for nearly 1000 years. Goya champuru is a popular Okinawan stir fry bitter melon recipe, commonly eaten by Okinawa’s centenarian residents. We love the vitamin-rich, miraculous fruit.
