In Tia Dinh, winter melon is not produced in a garden or on a trellis, but instead grows naturally on the ground, intercropping with many other crops. Tia Dinh is a winter melon with a solid gut, firm and aromatic fruit, and is simple to preserve and carry across long distances. These are also advantageous elements in the transportation and preservation of items delivered to neighboring provinces.
The local government sponsored the founding of CCO Dien Bien Dong Agricultural Cooperative in order to develop winter melon goods and, in particular, to support output for the people. Tia Dinh winter melon is now being grown, and the planting area has been enlarged from the harvesting and preservation stages to assist ensure and improve product quality on the market. The winter melon cultivar here currently provides farmers with 2-3 times the economic efficiency of other crops.
The journey to nominate and promote the TOP-BEST best-selling OCOP-certified products in 63 provinces and cities of Vietnam is one of the projects implemented under the strategic alliance between the Vietnam Records Organization (VietKings), the USA Records Organization (USKings) and the World Records Institute (WorldMark), with the goal of propagating and promoting the record values of countries worldwide.
