Parwal plant-Pointed gourd- SOLD OUT!

Trichosanthes dioica- Also known as Potol. More popular in the eastern part of Northern India in states like Bengal, Orissa, Assam, Bihar and Uttar Pradesh, this vining plant is dioecious (male and female plants). The female plants will bear the fruits but will require a male plant for fertilization. We plan to sell the plants as pairings of 3 females: 1 male, 6 females: 1 male, and 9 females: 1 male. The green fruit is about four inches long and two inches broad, with creamy flesh and small seeds. More commonly, chunks of the fruit are cooked as curry, stew or soup. As with other gourds, the bland fruit flesh is an ideal base for making sweets. The unripe fruit can be pickled in vinegar. Parwal is remarkable for its nutrition content.Unlike other gourds, it is more than just a low-calorie filler. A quantity of 100 gm of the edible fruit flesh contains 24 calories with plenty of vitamin A, vitamin C, potassium, phosphorous, magnesium and a bunch of other micro nutrients. Parwal has a high profile in Ayurveda, where it is used to treat fever, skin infections, wounds and constipation. Extracts of parwal seeds is reported to reduce cholesterol and blood sugar levels.
