June is the new century cantaloupe production season in Zhuangwei, Ilan. Recently, many people in the north drove directly to the producing area to buy cantaloupe, but during the third-level alert and epidemic prevention of pneumonia in Wuhan, there was a risk of consumers gathering to spread the epidemic. Chen Yuhua, director general of the Zhuangwei Township Peasant Association, said, "there are so many visitors from the north these days that the staff of the peasant association are afraid to see it themselves." consumers are invited to buy melons online instead of buying melons in person. In addition to the online mall "Rice Flower Farmers create Hall" open to order, the peasant association can also refer high-quality farmers to consumers.

Hami melon in the new century is a native improved variety of Hami melon in Xinjiang, which is characterized by oval fruit shape and crisp pulp, with Yilan Zhuangwei as the largest producing area. Last year, due to cold and hot weather and torrential rain, Hami melon farmers had almost no harvest in the new century. However, from March to May this year, the climate is good, and there is no shortage of water in Ilan, so that the melon harvest season in mid-June has been advanced by more than half a month, and the melon harvest has been harvested one after another since mid-late May.

Zhuangwei new century cantaloupe began to enter the stage of mass production this week, and many northern gluttons, afraid of logistics congestion, drove to Zhuangwei village to pick melons. However, at a time when the epidemic is on alert, people from all walks of life have called for the Dragon Boat Festival holiday not to return to their hometown. The Zhuangwei Township Farmers' Association announced on Facebook yesterday (8) that consumers are welcome to choose from farmers' stalls at Xinnan Road Difang, Xinnan Village. Chen Yuhua said that although farmers' stalls are outdoors, the streets are full of people these days, and crowds are afraid to be harmful to epidemic prevention. The relevant announcement will be amended as soon as possible, hoping that consumers will try their best to buy through online shopping or telegram with the supply and marketing department of peasant associations.

The cantaloupe gift box in the new century is packed in a single box of 2 fruits, and the weight of each fruit is about 3 jin. The farmers' association will charge about 90 yuan per jin at the purchase price from farmers, plus 100 to 120 yuan per box for normal temperature distribution and 200 to 240 yuan for refrigerated distribution. The actual price can negotiate with the peasant association staff. Chen Yuhua said that the Shuangbei area service has been resumed since yesterday, and at present, the whole Taiwan can be delivered, but there is no guarantee that it will be delivered the next day after ordering. if consumers are worried that the fruits are too ripe during storage and transportation, they are advised to choose refrigerated distribution.

Lin Wenhua pointed out that the preservation period of new century melons at room temperature is less than one week, and most people are less refrigerated. It is estimated that cold storage can be kept for two weeks, and homes can be stored for three days at room temperature. If the delay is up to five days, there may be a risk. If consumers buy cantaloupe in the new century, if they can pick up the goods immediately, it is recommended that they be ripe at room temperature for 1 or 2 days, and then refrigerate the fruit when the sweetness is the best. The flavor eaten after ice is irreplaceable.

Lin Wenhua, an assistant researcher at the Lanyang branch of the agricultural improvement farm in Hualien District, said that the fine product strategy of keeping one fruit per plant in Zhuangwei melon farmers has a normal yield preference this year. 50% to 80% of the fruit can be harvested in each orchard, with an average sweetness of more than 14 and 15 degrees, up to 17 degrees. The fruit harvested early at the beginning of the season may be smaller in shape, but it will gradually become larger from June onwards. This year, the fruit has the crisp characteristics that this variety should have, and consumers who have eaten it will not stop eating.
