jumpo or extra jumpo bitter melon

bob1102August 11, 2011

Where can I get ( buy) some of these jumpo or extra jumpo bitter melon seeds? I want the one that is not hybrid type.

I ordered some seeds from this ( see link)


and got some fruits that were only about 3" to 5" long. Needless to say I would never go back to that store.

Try here.

For several years, I have been trying to de-hybridize a long Chinese variety with smooth warts sent to me in trade; it gets as large as a cucumber in good years. Progress has been good, so I am hopeful... but unfortunately, I was unable to plant it this year. :-(
