Hami Melon (known as 哈密瓜 or Snow Melon) is a type of muskmelon, originally from Hami, Xinjiang (where it gets its namesake). They have a golden yellow, lightly-netted skin and a pale, coral-colored flesh which is delightfully crisp, juicy and refreshingly sweet. Like all muskmelons, they have a beautifully floral and honeyed aroma, making them the perfect addition to mooncakes!

Health Benefits

  • Packed with Vitamins: Hami Melons are a great source of vitamin C. The orange-colored flesh is also full of beta-carotene, which is the precursor to vitamin A. Hami Melons boast all the benefits of a vitamin A-rich superfood, like decreased inflammation and a lower risk of developing cancer, heart disease and cataracts in the eyes!
  • Other Benefits: Rock melons are also full of potassium (rids the body of excess sodium, therefore lowering the risk of heart disease and high blood pressure) and dietary fiber (aids digestion and fills you up quickly so you gain less weight!)
