|It is very interesting to see different shape & size of bitter gourds/peria katak grow from the same batch of seeds|
|This type of peria katak has the longest length (about 5 inches) and has a very smooth surface. I think this type of bitter gourd is most likely to get the better price in the market …|
|Second type of peria katak is slightly shorter in length (about 3-4 inches) and has a narrower shape with pointed ends. They look so unique to me.|
|Last but not least, the 3rd type of mini gourds is the cutest, very mini in size (1-2 in) and oval in shapes rather than oblong|
What about their bitterness? Don’t ask me…as I cooked all of them together. =p
Really not sure whether variation do exist in their bitterness or not, even though they are differ substantially in their shape.
But I am very sure these peria katak are bitterer than the commercial size (big & long) of bitter gourd (peria kampas) that we get from the market.
I like the bitterness in bitter gourd….what about you?
