Melomelo: Kava Cultivar Spotlight

What is Kava

Kava is a plant that has been used for centuries by the people of the Pacific Islands for its relaxing and social effects. Kava is made from the roots of the plant, which are dried and ground into a powder that can be mixed with water and consumed as a beverage. There are many different varieties or cultivars of kava, each with its own unique characteristics and effects. One of these cultivars is melomelo, which is grown on the island of Ambae in Vanuatu.

About Melomelo

Melomelo is a noble kava cultivar, which means it has been certified by the government of Vanuatu as safe to consume and free of harmful compounds. Noble kava cultivars are also known to have a balanced and consistent chemotype, which is the profile of kavalactones, the active ingredients in kava that produce its effects. Melomelo has a high concentration of kavain, one of the most desirable kavalactones, which is responsible for the uplifting and euphoric effects of kava.

Kava of all kinds including Melomelo have been purposefully cultivated for centuries by the people of Ambae, who selected and propagated the plants that had the best qualities and effects. Melomelo is named after the word for "dreamy" or "sleepy" in Bislama, the national language of Vanuatu. This reflects the smooth and mild but still very pleasant effect of melomelo, which can induce a state of calmness, relaxation, and tranquility. Melomelo kava is also known for its sweet and fruity flavor, which makes it more palatable than some other kava cultivars.

Melomelo is one of the most popular kava cultivars in Vanuatu, where it is commonly sold in the nakamals or kava bars that are found throughout the country. Nakamals are places where people gather to drink kava and socialize with friends and strangers alike.

Kava is seen as a way to connect with others, share stories and experiences, and promote peace and harmony.
