Oriental Melon Is Now Called “Korean Melon”Korean Melon to Be Registered as a Global Name at CODEX General Meeting

In May, CODEX (The Codex Alimentarius Commission) decided at its 48th general meeting held in Beijing, China that the Korean melon will be categorized in the melon class and registered as a global standard name.

The Oriental melon (chamoe in Korean) is a relatively new fruit to foreigners. It is a representative summer fruit in Korea and has a long history of cultivation in the country. It was not categorized in the CODEX food list so it had no official name.

Thanks to CODEX’s decision, the global standards for pesticide residue (31 types) in melons can now be applied to the Korean melon. It is expected that the export of Korean melon will expand from Hong Kong and Singapore to other markets in ASEAN and the European region.
