Freshly harvested fruits of bitter melon grown in Gansu province were analyzed for volatile composition by SPMEGC- MS. A total of 83 volatile components were identified and aldehydes, alcohols, alkenes and alkanes were the dominant volatile constituents. Totally 18 of aldehydes, 15 of alcohols, 11 of alkenes and 8 of alkanes were identified, accounting for 37.46%, 37.16%, 7.02% and 2.92% of total volatile components, respectively.

Key words: bitter melon, volatile composition, solid phase microextraction-GC-MS (SPME-GC-MS)
