Said to be very healthy (let's face it, most sour or bitter foods always are touted as healthy, why else would we eat them?), I have deep fried bitter melon slices and curried melon in Sri Lanka.
A massive 10-20kg fruit that is almost indescribably tasty to eat.
Sweet, slightly like banana, yet a bit crunchy into the bargain.
Eat it straight off the tree or in Sri Lankan curries, either way, it's delicious!
