Karela, as better known in India and some neighboring countries, is also called by names such as bitter melon, bitter gourd, bitter squash and balsam pear. Bitter Gourd comes packed with nutrients that enable you to lead a healthy life. Most important of all is a phytonutrient Polypeptide-P, which is a plant insulin that lowers blood sugar levels naturally. Not just this, it also has the potential to treat cancer and HIV infection in their early stages. It also carries a potent dose of Vitamin C, A, K and is proven to work wonders for the skin and liver. Bitter Gourd is also helpful in lowering cholesterol, removing the kidney stones, and even reducing the risk of pancreatic cancer.

As far as the taste is concerned, rubbing salt or soaking peeled bitter gourd in salt water prior to cooking, cuts down on the bitterness considerably. Either cut it in fine rings and cook it like other vegetables with spices or simply slit through and stuff it with your favorite spices for an interesting dish.
Growing guide for Bitter Gourd Seeds

Planting instructions

Sow seeds in holes about a half - inch deep (1.25 cm) and spaced 12 inches (30 cm) apart. Sow two seeds in each hole.

Seeds germinate in 8 to 10 days, though it is sensitive to temperature changes.

Add a rope to support the young plant.

Prune away the growing tip when it reaches the top of the trellis. As a result, the plant will produce a greater number of flowers and fruit sooner.

Growing Requirements

watering

Water regularly to keep the soil moist, but not soggy.

pests

Pests first appear as white powdery residue primarily on the upper leaf surface. On the lower surface of the leaves, circular patches or spots appear. In severe cases, these spread, coalesce and cover both the surfaces of the leaves and spread also to the petioles, stem, etc. Some of the types attacking are fungal diseases like powdery mildew and downy mildew, watermelon mosaic virus, rots, fruit flies etc.

soil

Bitter gourd grows best in organically rich, sandy or loamy soil that drains well. A well drained soil with a pH ranging between 6.5-7.5, enriched with organic matter, such as compost or dried manure.

spot

Select a warm, sunny planting location. Provide full sun to this vine; at least 6 hours of sunlight.

temperature

Seeds require the temperature above 70°F (20°C) for germination.

how to harvest

To make bittergourd seeds, simply allow a fruit on the vine and let it mature. When the seed is fully mature, it will alter its colour to yellow and open to reveal the sources.

You can cut the produce from the vine and open the fruit to get the germs away.

Wash the seeds and place them on a paper towel to soak up. Dry in shade and storage in an airtight bag.
