WANTED: Bitter Melon Seeds

I am looking for bitter melon seeds, also known as bitter gourd, foo gwah or karela. I can swap almost any vegetable seed or wouldn’t mind paying either. I am in Pretoria.

Thanks, Sarina.

I would not be able to help you with bitter melon seeds; but, I was wondering if you would like to swop fruit, vegetable and herb seeds with me. I have a big variety; including very exotic seeds.

Thank you

HI Dear, Do you still need bitter gourd (Momordica charantia) seeds? I would like to trade it with you for calabash (Lagenarnia siceraria) or succulent seeds like Elephant Foot (Dioscorea elephantipes) seeds.
I studied in South Africa 26 years ago for one year and travelled a lot around the country. I know there are a lot of different calabashes and plants there.
As an hobbist, I’m growing watermeons, melons (melon, var. albida Makino), wax gourd (Benincasa hispida) and calabashes. Please contact me

Would you like swap karela seeds with succulent seeds with me? I can teach you how to grow karela. I live on Taiwan, such a distance is not a problem for swaping of hobbyist. It is winter on SA, when spring comes, you can grow it.

Hi I can’t find it in Ssouth Africa , I live in Pretoria. I tried to contact mbolo but to no sucsess. If some one can help me find Bitter gourt seeds it would be a blessing.

Hello everyone, if anybody is looking for karela in Johannesburg; you can find the vegetable at a fruit and veg store in Joburg called Rama’s corner 6th and church street, Mayfair.Its an Indian run veg store and they stock a variety of stuff that you would not necessarily find anywhere else. I’m sure if you sourced the vegetable you could get the seeds from inside. I was also able to find turmeric root, madumbi and calabash there.

Hope this helps…..Bye
