This bitter gourd produces a generous crop of large, heavy and uniform fruits with distinctive vertically scored, shiny and warty green skin. Fruit size up to 12 inches and 3 inches in diameter. Also known as Bitter Melon, Karella, and Balsam Pear, it prefers warm, humid conditions. Among the most bitter of vegetables, the flesh of the bitter gourd is crunchy and juicy, somewhat like a cucumber in texture.
