Cyclanthera pedata from Manali, the plant was first first uploaded in the group by Nabha ji from Sikkim as Meetha karela or sweet karela from after a lot of discussion (because name meetha karela is commonly associated with Momordica dioica). In Manali also it is known by the name karela. Incidently the German name for plant is Korila. The fruits are used as vegetable, as salad or cooked vegetable.
