April K-Food, ChamoeCrispy and Sweet…Exports Start in April

Oriental melon (Kor. chamoe) is mainly cultivated in East Asian countries—Korea, China, and Japan. Thanks to the abundant vitamin C and potassium, the fruit is considered effective in overcoming fatigue and quenching thirst. The oriental melon from Korea has a bright yellow color and is crispy and sweet. Last May, the Codex Alimentarius Commission registered it under the name “Korean melon.”

The fruit is cultivated in greenhouses from January to August. Exports overseas—Japan, Hong Kong, Southeast Asia, and other markets—generally begin in April.
