This week I'm going for green vegetables, green fruit, and green pods. GrinGrinGrin
Sopropo I find very interesting! Related to the cucumber it is also an immature fruit. Sopropo is native to tropical Asia, but comes in a variety of shapes and sizes. This shots were taken in a vegetable market in Sri Lanka.
The typical sopropo is green, 20 to 30 cm long and oval shaped. Sopropo has an undulating surface. Its flesh surrounds a central seed cavity filled with large flat seeds .The seeds are white.The flesh is crunchy and watery in texture and has a bitter taste. It is often used in Chinese cooking for its bitter flavour, typically in stir-fries, soups, and teas. It is also a popular ingredient for salads or to stuff. The skin is tender and edible. But did you know that Sopropo is also called ‘Bitter Melon’ and ‘Bitter Gourd’ and it is the most bitter amongst all other vegetables?

Never heard of one of these, Isabel, so thank you for your informative write-up. They don't sound too pleasant, either, being so bitter, but I guess the Sri Lankas and Chinese like them Smile Carol
