It does best in a warm climate with some humidity. Prepare fertile, well-drained soil. In warm areas, sow seeds in late spring/early summer after the last frost in a warm, sunny location. Low soil temperatures may result in low or no germination. For better germination, pre-sprout seeds indoors by soaking in water for 24 hours. Wrap in a wet paper towel and keep warm between 75-85°F. Plant when seeds sprout. Keep soil moist. Fertilize as needed. Train to climb a vertical support for better air circulation and ease of harvest. Bitter melons are excellent in soups and tasty addition to stir-fries. Try them stuffed with pork, seafood, or cooked with fermented black beans. Recommended as a healthy food by the American Diabetic Association.
