Bitter melon is a superfood amongst vegetables….ayurveda teaches that the bitter taste has cooing, cleansing, drying and alkalising effects, and that bitter foods detoxify and tone the organs…especially the liver.

Bitter melon has been used in Asia for many generations as a food source and also as a medicine.

These gourds grow prolifically on a vine, they are growing on 6 foot high fences in the garden with pretty yellow flowers.
