OVER RIPENING PARE

Yesterday, when I was picking some cabe rawit (little chilli pepper) I found something interesting.
Wow... there was an over ripening pare (bitter gourd) hanging on the dense vine.
The fruit still wrapped in the plastic bag.
I wrapped the fruit to keep it from the fruit flies attack.

 

The yellow-orange fruit, have cracked by the time.


Look, the red seeds were peeking.


When I was touching  the fruit, suddenly it was break and down to the ground.



On another spot, I found some seeds were spread on the ground.
Some seeds were germinating and sprouting by it self.
I guess the seeds came from over ripening pare that fallen down to the ground.



The favorable weather made they grew naturally.
So natural...

  6. That is a very interesting gourd. Does it taste similar to any other gourds?

    1. It tastes a little bitter, but we can reduce the unpleasant taste by washing it with the salt. We usually harvest this gourds on medium stage of their maturity. The taste will be better.

  7. I love volunteer vegetables! Some of my best tomatoes come up unexpectedly from rotten tomatoes from the previous season. And I love to find onion plants in our compost pile. Once we even had an avocado plant. You are right. Very natural! Linda@Wetcreek Blog
