Very bitter - Grows best in warm tropical and sub-tropical climate.

Heh, I presume these are "Bitter melons"?
The mother in law makes curries with these. She takes off the big bumps on the outside with a peeler, slits them open, scoops out the inside, and then stuffs them with spiced mince before adding them to a keema (using the same mince). Very nice
Do they grow easily over here?
