1. GENERAL INFORMATION
1.1 Commodity Descriptio
Ampalaya, scientifically named as Momordica charantia, is grown widely
throughout the Philippines and is considered to be one of the biggest income generating
crops. f the two local !arieties, the green and the white fruited, the green is preferred for
both eating and planting.
"he !ines of this annual herb climb to a length of 3#4 meters, and the plant grows
best in hot, humid areas in altitudes up to 5$$ meters. %itter gourd is adapted to a wide
!ariation in rainfall and soils& howe!er, it prefers loams well#drained, rich, organic types
with ade'uate water retaining capacity. "he plant is cross#pollinated and produces better
when trellised.
(ifty to se!enty days after sowing the immature fruits are ready for har!esting.
"hey are boiled, fried, curried or pic)led. *oa)ing the fruit in salted water remo!es some
of the bitter taste. +n comparison to the other cucurbits, the bitter gourd is more nutritious
with higher le!els of !itamin A and calcium. ,owe!er, they do not store well. "he young
shoots and lea!es, also nutritious, are prepared as a !egetable.
Ma-or pests include fruit flies, fruit worms, and aphids. "he diseases are bacterial
wilt, anthracnose and fusarium wilt.
