Did you know? One unusual fact about the Kalahari Melon vine is that it is also known as the Tsamma Melon, and it has been used for centuries by the San people of Southern Africa as a natural thirst quencher. The juicy flesh of the Kalahari Melon is rich in water and nutrients, making it a valuable source of hydration for people living in the arid regions of Southern Africa. In fact, the Kalahari Melon has been found to contain up to 90% water and is believed to be one of the most water-rich fruits in the world. The San people also used the seeds of the fruit to produce oil for cooking and skin care, highlighting the many uses and benefits of this remarkable plant.

Supplier information: Our supplier is proud to support tree planting activities every year, as part of their commitment to sustainability since their inception in 2016. They also take pride in training the farmers they work with in sustainable harvesting practices for the tree species used and supporting them with forest management. They are particularly proud to work with women, as 95% of the people they collaborate with are women. In rural areas of Zimbabwe, where our supplier operates, women make up a significant portion of the population and are often involved in fruit and nut picking. While they may showcase women in their pictures, it is not a deliberate exclusion of men. In fact, they also see male involvement in activities such as transportation of fruits and nuts and operating machinery.
