Key Information:

The Hami melon is a type of muskmelon, originally from Hami, Xinjiang.

It is also referred to as the Chinese Hami melon or the snow melon.

The outer color is generally white through pink or yellow through green. The inside flesh is sweet and crisp. More than 100 cultivated forms and hybrids of the 'Hami' melon have been grown in China.

In Mandarin, Hami gua can also be used to refer to cantaloupe.

Health Benefits:

A one-cup serving of cantaloupe has only 53 calories, but it contains 106 percent of the vitamin A daily value and 95 percent of vitamin C.

It’s also a good source of potassium and folate. A cup of honeydew has 60 calories, 51 percent vitamin C daily value and 11 percent of potassium.

Honeydew also contains some fiber, folate and vitamin B6. Watermelon contains the least amount of calories, coming in at 46 calories per one-cup serving.

However, it’s loaded with the antioxidant lycopene, which is linked to decreased risk of cancer, heart disease and age-related eye disorders, and contains a good amount of vitamin A, vitamin C and potassium.

Because melons have such a high water content and also contain potassium, they’re fantastic choices for helping maintain healthy blood pressure levels.
