I read from several literature, this kind of vegetable is easy to grow in hot and humid areas.


Then, it is possible to grow “paria” during summer in American southern. After sowing the seed, we could harvest “paria” in 60 days.


Eating cooked or boiled “paria” could improve our appetite. It also has good nutritional values.


Just some of the nutritional benefits in the bitter gourd are: dietary fiber, protein, variety of minerals and vitamins.

Many people in Asian countries such as Japan, Korea and China used “paria” to cure several diseases.
