Ogen Melon

Ogen melon is a melon which is roughly oblong in shape, with skin which starts out dark green and pales to a yellowish gold as the melon matures, with deep streaks of green, yellow, or orange in the skin.

 

Melons are rich in potassium; nutrients that may help control blood pressure, regulate heartbeat, and possibly prevent strokes.

 

As with other melons, there are a number of uses for Ogen melon. It can be eaten fresh out of hand, added to fruit salads, and used in fruit ices and sorbets.

 

It can also be paired with various other ingredients as an appetizer, and mixed into fruit punches.

 

You may also hear Ogen melon called “Israeli melon,” and you should select it carefully, looking for a specimen which feels heavy for its size and resounds with a rich hollow sound when tapped.

 

If you want to grow Ogen melon, clear a warm, sunny spot in the garden out of the breeze, and enrich the soil with compost, loam, and builder’s sand.

 

You can either plant seedlings from the garden store or sprout your own; in all cases, plant after the last chance of frost has passed, and keep the young melon plants well watered, fertilizing with fish emulsion to encourage healthy, strong growth.

 

The good amount of potassium and magnesium that is present in melons is very beneficial in terms of bringing down blood pressure.

 

Potassium is considered a vasodilator, meaning that it releases the tension of blood vessels and arteries, thereby stimulating increased blood flow and reducing the stress on the cardiovascular system.

 

Lypocene is found to be effective in repairing damaged tissues.

 

Melon seeds are rich in beneficial fats and proteins.

 

Watermelons also contain phytonutrients which have very good effects on the health and proper functioning of internal organs, eyes, and the secretion system.
