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 taumingliu@gmail.com

    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.

    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
