South America, where it is used as a food as well as a medicine. It produces beautiful flowers and prickly
fruit. The fruit of this plant lives up to its name_it tastes bitter. Although the seeds, leaves, and vines of bitter
melon have all been used, the fruit is the safest and most prevalent part of the plant used medicinally. The
juice of the leaves and fruit or seeds is used as an anthelmintic. In Brazil, the dose for anthelmintic use is two
or three seeds. The immature fruit of M. Charantia tastes bitter due to the cucurbitacius. Cucurbitacius is

The roots and fruit are used as an abortifacient.
