Ampalaya Flower

Have you seen an ampalaya flower?

Amplaya is the local name of Momordica charantia widely known as the bitter gourd or bitter melon in English. 

The flower is too pretty, who would believe that a vine with pretty flower like this will bear a warty looking fruit and with bitter taste.

  10. It always amazes me that such a beautiful flower can come from a fruit or vegetable plant. Thank you very much for sharing with Today's Flowers.
