Bitter melons are just like cucumbers. They are edible when green and unripe but yellow and bitter when ripe. All it's good for now is seed.

That is what they are supposed to do but, the yellowing of the leaves is caused by either not feeding the plant correctly or by not watering enough. Not feeding the plant is the most likely.
