The attractive leaves are deeply indented; the dainty yellow flowers are fragrant. The fruits are waxy, warty skin and oblong shape.
Bitter gourd prefers warm humid climate, the soil must be well drained and rich in organic material.
Ripening fruits are best wrap with paper bag to protect them being damaged by fruit flies.
