Bitter gourd, green, yellow and red!

They are green and exotic looking while young, but the moment ripening take place, they turn yellowish. Then the outer flesh become soft and they are melting...... The other day we plucked 3 gourds and consumed two... Over time, the third was more or less forgotten. It ripened in the basket..... green turned yellow and then blood red!!

  1. Sometimes I like bitter gourds if the cooking agrees with me. Like making them into 'kerabu'. Yummy!

  4. Det_pri,

    Untuk cucuk tanam... kalau ada rumah teres, semi_D atau bungalow... boleh agaknya dalam kawasan masing2... Kalau apartment, itu susah nak cakap, dalam pasu sajala . Org presint 9 ada Community garden!!.. Untuk ajar cucuk tanam, saya pun mencuba-cuba saja, pandai tidak!
