Bitter Melon

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

We do an annual garden and winery tour with friends from the farmer’s market.  Last year, we were gifted some bitter melon seeds at one of the farms we visited.  This is the coolest looking vegetable ever.  It’s a vine that grows warty squash-like fruits.  When they ripen, they turn bright yellow and burst open to show their large bright red seeds.  I find them fascinating but  can’t comment on their flavor because I haven’t tried one yet.  I’m chicken…
