Planting and care for white bitter gourd

Sowing white bitter gourd seeds

  • White bitter gourd seeds usually have a red coating wrapped around them. The first step is to chip away some of the coatings.
  • Soak the seeds in water overnight. The germination process begins with this kick so that seeds can consume large amounts of water immediately.
  • Plant the seeds in the compost about 1 cm deep. In order to nurture the plant, water the pot thoroughly while avoiding a soggy or water-soaked environment which could hinder its growth
  • After a few weeks, you should see the seeds begin to sprout.

Growing white bitter gourd seeds

Harvesting white bitter gourd

  • White bitter gourd should be harvested 12 to 16 weeks after planting and 8 to 10 days after blossoming. Harvest when the fruits are 4 to 6 inches (10-15 cm) long.
  • The fruits would be pear-shaped and have light white skin with yellow stripes.

Precautions while growing white bitter gourd

  • Bitter gourd climber necessitates the use of a trellis or a creeper net for support.
  • It is recommended that the plant be grown in direct sunlight.
  • This climber demands a lot of water, which is why it thrives during the monsoon season.
  • All gourds require at least 100 frost-free days to develop.
  •  Plant gourds once the soil temperature has reached 70° to 80°F.
  • Start seeds indoors 2 to 4 weeks before transplanting into the garden to get a head start on the season.

Common Problems affecting white bitter gourd plants and solutions

  • The undersides of the leaves curl inward, becoming deformed and yellowish. Aphids are small, oval, and generally white in colour and can be found on the underside of leaves.
  •  Plants are more vulnerable to damage from powdery mildew when they are young, so you can use fungicides like Trichoderma Viride Bio Fertilizer 
  • or biopesticides to protect them.
  • They leave behind adhesive, blackish scum excrement called honeydew, which can become scummy mold. Consider using insecticidal soap, organic neem cake or Pseudomonas Fluorescens Biofertilizer as a solution.
  • Adding an organic amendment to a planting bed will help to promote good drainage. The key for long term plant survival is to ensure moist but well-drained soil. Do not over-water the plant roots.
