Extra large, mild Japanese bitter melon. these pearly white, mellow flavored fruit is still quite nutritionally potent with a more refined, less bitter flavor. Fruit averages 8-10 inches long and are quite thick. The fruit is typically cut thick and added to soups or shaved thin and eaten raw.

What are the pros? Nice sized harvest.

What are the cons? 3/10 seeds grew.

Review:

3 of the 10 seeds grew. However, those three really took off and produced tons of beautiful fruit. Less bitter than the green varieties.

What are the pros? Less bitter, beautiful fruit

What are the cons? Needs good, rich soil

Review:

I planted these in two separate gardens, 45 miles apart. One garden is in a remote rural area and gets little attention. The other is in town and is tended frequently. The Okinawans in the remote garden took a bit to get growing, but once started, there was no stopping them. They grew up a fence in big green waves and produced big, beautiful pearly fruit. The ones in the town garden all died but one: this lone plant grew to 6 inches long and stopped growing. It sat there all summer and didn’t grow another inch and never produced fruit. From the fruit out of the rural garden I was able to make bitter melon pickles and bitter melon jelly (using jalape?o jelly recipe from the Ball Blue Book, just substitute bitter melons for jalape?os). The melons are a little less bitter than the green melons I grow, they get bigger, and are so pretty. I took several to work and people were grabbing them up because they had never seen anything so unique. Make sure your soil is rich, you will love!

What are the pros? Good germination

What are the cons? Long maturity

Review:

Zone 6 direct sow on June 10th. All 5 seeds germinated. Proliferate growth however only 3 mature fruits harvested Oct 7. My advice is to start early give it 5 months and don't go organic with blood meal bone meal or espoma plant tone. You should get jacks 20.20.20 instead and roid it out. You also need a large trellis. Good luck

What are the pros? Prolific flowers

What are the cons? A lot of side shoots

Review:

I was so excited to grow these. I live in an apartment so I thought meh we will see. I have 8 fruit that I have hand pollinated and this was grown in a 2 gallon pot. I had to cut side shoots because it was taking over my trellis. They do turn pure white and were very easy to grow I started them in cool weather and they still did wonderful. Will be growing again!!!!
