Taiwan White Bitter Melon

Pearly white, refined fruits are more mild than other bitter melons. The smooth, white fruits are often found neatly lined up and proudly displayed at kiosks in Taiwan, where they are pureed into juices with just a hint of honey for sweetness. This variety is also a popular salad type, thinly shaved as a cooling summer treat. An exceptional variety for those new to eating bitter melon or who do not love the stronger flavor of the more astringent green varieties. We collected seeds for these in the beautiful city of Taipei, Taiwan. In Taiwan these are believed to be beneficial for a variety of health conditions and used as an overall tonic. Street-side stands sell these famous white bitter melons prepared into everything from smoothies and ice cream, to curries and stirfry. These have a wonderful flavor and are so beautiful, we grow the elegant vines even in our flower gardens. The lovely fruit can grow to over 12” long and get quite heavy.

Review:

Bought 2 more packs of seed once I found out how good this variety was just in case these weren't offered for the 2019 season. My Filipina wife insisted I transplant volunteers that came up from last years crop of our regular variety on the same trellis and I knew this years crop would be crossed. Taiwan White is the deffinate winner and we will grow from now on! Eastern Leaf Footed Insects love our regular variety sucking the juices of the fruits causing about 1/2 of the fruits to color orange prematurely and be ruined. They don't seem to like the Taiwan White and we have had no losses due to the bugs, only a few overripe fruits we missed in the dense foliage. Vines are disease resistant and very prolific also! they have taken over the 8ft A frame trellis and are now also growing 6-8ft to either side on the ground. If you like Ampalaya you will love this large thick fleshed variety! A true winner and has earned a yearly place in our garden!
