Two new cucurbitane-type triterpenes, karavilagenins D and E, and six new cucurbitane-type triterpene glycosides, karavilosides VI, VII, VIII, IX, X, and XI, were isolated from the fruit of Momordica charantia L. (Cucurbitaceae) cultivated in Sri Lanka. Their structures were elucidated on the basis of chemical and physicochemical evidence.
