My plant is growing well but the fruit seems to be stunted. The gourds grow but remain quite small. Also, some fruit seems to be turning yellow. Would greatly appreciate some advice. Please see photos.
I have planted a few karela seeds and now have some very healthy young plants which are growing robustly. I am preparing to build a structure to support their growth. Will this plant do well and produce fruit on a trellis which is strictly vertical with no horizontal plane? I'm asking because all of the images I have seen show this plant growing and producing fruit on a horizontal structure. In these photos the plant climbs up the sides and then across the top but I only see fruit hanging from top.I only have room to build a trellis with one vertical plane. I can't imagine why this would prevent the plant from fruiting as it seems illogical but I thought I'd ask.
