Bitter gourd fruit is not preferred by many people, But I enjoy to have bitter gourd fry and the dried bitter gourd with curd. Bitter gour dvines needs to have support for climbing.
Right now planted just 2 bitter gourd. The image shows the plant with a growth period of 20 days.
Compared to cucumber plant bitter gourd is taking longer time to flower. Now since i planted it, it is almost a month and could not find any flowes, but the plant is spreading through the net and looks healthy and also branches of vines appeared.
vines are spreading across the net.
Used cir and nylon strings as the support for the vines. clips that you see is meant for hanging cloths :).
Applied a polythene cover to protect from the pests and insects.
