Organic Jade melons from Magic Organics Co.
Jade melon (翠玉瓜) is basically a Chinese zucchini. The flavor and texture of Jade Melons are pretty similar to that of zucchini's, the peel is much lighter and a bit denser. Perfect for a Saturday grill and it is our favorite to 'spin out' low-carb zucchini pasta with these! This is a seasonal Summer veggie and is only harvested during the season.
The KAI KHS Spiral Cutter Zoodle-maker is recommended for making lengthy spiral. All you have got to do is spin the handle! Play with carrots and other vegetables too!
Why Are They Good For You?
Zucchini contains a variety of vitamins, minerals and beneficial plant compounds. Cooked zucchini is particularly high in vitamin A, though raw zucchini contains slightly less.
This is where your vegetables were grown.
Magic Organics Co veggies start their life on their farm in Qingyuan, Guangdong. MOC has 60,000 square meters of farmland perched up in the mountains, with direct access to clean water and fresh air - an ideal location for veggies to flourish.
For MOC, the search for the perfect land started in 2007 until they hit the jackpot; access to roads, labour, fresh water, away from major highways and of course, clean soil. MOC soil is free from toxic chemicals and heavy metals. There's no one above their farmland (they are located on a casual 45 minute drive up a mountain!) so there's no run-off from other farms.
MOC's farm was certified organic in 2012 and has maintained the certification every year since then. In other words, they never failed the test. You can shop with confidence in the safety of MOC produce.
Today, MOC serves families in Hong Kong by providing the best seasonal vegetables available through our pick up and home delivery service.
