I. Experimental Process
Location: Melon Base in Malianzhuang, Laixi, Qingdao City, Shandong Province, China
Method: Melon greenhouse (three acres), comparison area divided by the center line: three times spraying marine minerals on the left side and once spraying marine minerals on the right side.
Time: Early May 2020 to early June 2020
Testing process and comparison of results: First spraying on the left side of the center line before pollination on May 12.
May 22 (10 days later): Melon leaves visually contrasted obviously: Sprayed marine minerals left side of the melon, leaf stretch bright green; not sprayed right side of the leaf curl closed, dark green color. The picture below.
May 23: Second spraying of Da An Marine Minerals After seeing the changes in the melon foliage after the first spraying, the grower was so shocked by the marine minerals that he took the liberty of spraying the comparison areas that should not have been sprayed with marine minerals. See the following picture.
May 30: The melon leaves that should not have been sprayed with marine minerals soon stretched back to green, and the growers said: “The effect was very obvious on the spot! See the picture below.
June 5: 3rd marine minerals spraying, left side only.
Summary: In the above figure, the left area was sprayed with marine minerals three times; the right area was sprayed with marine minerals once.
II. Yield Comparison Orchards using Da An Marine Minerals do not require fruit combing, as the balanced mineral nutrition ensures that each fruit fully absorbs the nutrients it needs for growth. The melon grower was not confident enough to stick to the empirical “thinning” routine of keeping only 5 to 6 melons per plant per season because he was new to marine minerals. Therefore, the difference in yield after an artificial intervention is not significant, and the trial comparison lacks an objective basis.
See the following chart:
III. Quality Comparison
The melon’s aroma was fragrant and strong, and the aroma was overwhelming. Very sweet, high sugar content, claw juice sticky hands.
Direct feedback from people tasting melons on site
“Melon is indeed very sweet, sweeter than the market to buy indeed, after eating sticky hands, high sugar content!”
“Very fragrant; I brought some melons back yesterday, and now that I have this car, as soon as the door is opened, a strong melon fragrance comes to the nose.”

IV. Marine Minerals’ Melon Sales and Customer Satisfaction
White foam box, an average of 10 pounds per box; about 14–15 melons. It contains a single-used marine mineral melon and three times-used marine mineral melons (labeled) for users to do further tasting comparisons. See the picture below.
Guests have been feedback marine minerals melon aroma sufficient, sweet taste, fresh and crisp, and said this would be the most delicious melon ever eaten.
The left melon was sprayed three times with marine minerals, and the right melon was sprayed once.
The melon that was sprayed three times had very full and plump flesh; the flesh of the melon that was sprayed once was hollow. You can imagine what the melon would have looked like without the marine minerals.
