Bitter melon - some questions

12 years ago


I have decided to grow bitter melon this year. I understand the seeds are difficult to start but I am up for that challenge. The one I am going to grow is small & round and turns from green to orange. According to the seed catalog it will pop open when ripe if not taken off the vine. The catalog also says the melon is very bitter BUT the seeds inside are red and taste like cherry candy. Please let me know if this is true. Thanks.
