Our melon portfolio:
- Galia Melons
The aromatic, green flesh, round & well netted melon was first developed commercially by Hazera in Israel. Hazera focuses on developing varieties that are adapted to different countries and seasons, that are highly productive, with special resistances and excellent flesh quality.
The most aromatic melon in the world, developed for local consumption and very popular in the Middle East, Morocco, Turkey, Greece, Israel and many other countries (that grow the Galia as well). It is oblong in shape, has an eye-catching external color and is big, from 2 up to 4 kgs. Hazera is focused on developing a highly resistant melon variety, with high internal qualities, that combines a strong plant with good productivity and yields.
Since the market is evolving and looking for more innovation Hazera is developing unique specialty melon types that combine the genetics of Ananas, Galia and other melon types. The focus is on varieties offering very high quality, high uniformity and different taste experiences, distinctive in shape and colour from other melon types. These specialty melons are targeted for markets that seek for new flavour but that must be externally recognizable and distinctive.
