Interesting Produce…What Have You Found?
I hesitate to call it a ‘new’ fruit or veggie if it’s just something that I personally haven’t seen before. That certainly doesn’t make it new, other than ‘new to me’.
One of the fun things about shopping at your local farmer’s market is encountering fruits and veggies that you may not have heard of, let alone tasted previously. What a fantastic way to expand your Paleo palate!

The vendor explained that it’s generally consumed cooked in the green or early yellowing stage and that the shoots and leaves of the bitter melon may also be eaten as greens.
