The young fruit of Momordica charantia serves as an addition to stews but the leaves commonly treat high blood pressure.  They are used alone in a tea or as a tisane with three leaves of karela, a little piece of yellow breadfruit leaf (Artocarpus altilis) and three leaves of ponm kannel (Annona squamosa) boiled together with cold water added.  Caution: the seeds and wall of the ripe fruit contain alkaloids which can cause vomiting and diarrhea.
