This spring I planted GOYA, and I got some GOYA. GOYA is usually grown in OKINAWA, and it is famous for the really bitter taste. Actaully I don't like it very much, but I heard it was good for our health and easy to grow, so I planted.
This summer my husband and I have had GOYA & yoghurt juice almost every morning. Though the taste was really bitter, but the vivid green juice looked really healthy.
A friend said ripe GOYA is not so bitter.So I waited some GOYA to be ripe.
The usual green GOYA is hard, but the ripe GOYA is really soft.
I made GOYA tempura with gree peppers.
Unexpectedly or as my friend said, it was not so bitter , proper bitter taste. Even my daughter was willing to eat it.
This summer we really enjoyed "GOYA". Thanks "GOYA".
I don't like gardening very much, and I'm not good at gardening.BUT this time we could get ripe goya because I did gardening. Growing vegetables in the garden might be add to the list of my hobbies.
