Bittermelon in zone 9?
I have recently found that bittermelon really helps keep my blood sugar numbers down. I would like to grow bittermelon in my side yard. I have abour 6"X 25' to do this. My wife is growing some in the front yard at work in napa, and they seem to be doing well; though they were started late for the season.
Has anyone here grown these, and if so do you have any tips? Also, is there a specific growing season for these or is this something I can grow year-round?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
