A bottle gourd vine is quick-growing, with a hairy stem, long forked tendrils, and a musky odour. The large, showy white flowers and dense foliage make it a popular screen and ornamental plant. The hard-shelled fruits, edible when young, are made into water bottles, dippers, spoons, pipes, and many other utensils and containers.

Bright, vibrant-looking spinach leaves are not only more appealing to the eye but more nourishing as well. Recent research has shown that spinach leaves that look fully alive and vital have greater concentrations of vitamin C than spinach leaves that are pale in color. The study authors suggest that the greater supply of vitamin C helps protect all of the oxygen-sensitive phytonutrients in the spinach leaves and makes them looking vibrant and alive.
Many people are concerned about the nutrient content of delicate vegetables (like baby spinach) when those vegetables are placed in clear plastic containers in grocery store display cases and continuously exposed to artificial lighting. One recent food study has shown that you don't need to worry about the overall status of antioxidants in baby spinach that has been stored and displayed in this way. In this scientific study, the overall nutrient richness of the baby spinach when exposed to constant light was actually higher than the overall nutrient richness of baby spinach leaves kept in total darkness. The period of time in the study was 9 days, and the spinach was kept at 39°F/4°C (a temperature on the lower end of the scale for most home refrigerators). These findings are good news for anyone purchasing baby spinach in "ready-to-eat" containers.

CARROT not only contain vitamin A which is good for the eyes. More than that, carrots contain many nutrients and minerals to prevent stroke. Carrots are known to contain vitamin A which is very high.

Carrots are the plants that are planted throughout the year and can grow in all seasons, especially in mountainous areas that have cold temperatures and damp. Carrots are vegetables easily available and very much beneficial for health.

There are some people, especially children who do not like this vegetable because not yet know whether the benefits of carrots are very rich in vitamins.

Bitter gourd is one of the best vegetable-fruit that helps improve diabetic and toxemia conditions.
The  bitter gourd looks like a cucumber but with ugly gourd-like bumps all over it.As the name implies, this vegetable is a melon that is bitter.  There are two varieties of this vegetable:  One grows to about 20 cm long, is oblong and pale green in color.  The other is the smaller variety, less than 10 cm long, oval and has a darker green color.Both varieties have seeds that are white when unripe and that turn red when they are ripe.  The vegetable-fruit turn reddish-orange when ripe and becomes even more bitter.Bitter gourd thrives in hot and humid climates, so are commonly found in Asian countries and South America.Westerners may not be so used to bitter melons, so may find them more difficult to consume.  But if you can generally take bitter taste, you may be able to take this too.  Try it, at least for all its healthful virtues!
