Subject: [indiantreepix:17814] sweet karela

Hallo,
in Feb 2009 I visited Sikkim. One Sabjiwala gave me some seeds of sweet karela. I put them in a pot in April. 
In the beginning it did not want to grow, the summer was very dry.  Now it is raining a lot and the Karelas are getting bigger everyday.
I shall be able to harvest 7 Karelas now.
I shall enjoy eating karelasabji and remembering my trip to Sikkim.
Until my visit to Sikkim I did not know that Karelas are also sweet. I knew only the bitter ones.
Does this Plant have an ID?
 
Regards
Nalini
