Description

The skin of an Indian bitter melon is thick, bumpy, and rough. It is covered in many small, irregularly shaped ridges known as teeth. The skin changes in color from green to yellow-orange when mature and ripens. Underneath the surface, the flesh is crisp, firm, white, wrapping a small cavity filled with seeds and pith. Indian bitter melons are considered unpalatable when raw, but once cooked, they develop a tender taste with a sharp, bitter flavor.
