–  武陵農場成立於1963年5月間,以輔導、安置榮民從事農業生產及發展觀光旅遊之服務事業,提供榮民就業安置之工作機會為主。

– 武陵農場為雪山山脈所圍繞而成的狹長形山谷,大甲溪上游及七家灣溪穿流其中,場區位於深山,水流充沛。

–  櫻花鉤吻鮭及七家灣遺址是武陵最具稀有性與獨特性的生態旅遊資源。

–  武陵四秀及雪山群峰,更是台灣山嶽界膾炙人口的聖山。

–  到武陵必遊的桃山瀑布,因瀑布水量非常大,站在涼亭就可以感受到水氣,如同感受煙聲,又名煙聲瀑布。

–  武陵秋冬之際楓紅迷人,又有台灣九寨溝的美譽。

–  聖稜線為雪山山脈從大霸尖山至雪山之間高峻的連峰稜線,亦為台灣高山縱走的重要路線之一。

Stamp of 神秘果 Miracle fruit:

TW-918625 stamp

 

神秘果(學名:Synsepalum dulcificum),又名變味果,屬於山欖科多年生矮生灌木,原產西非熱帶地區,1960年代引入中國後,在廣東、廣西、台灣、雲南、海南等地都有種植。

神秘果的果肉酸澀,但內含有神秘果蛋白,吃了神秘果半小時內,接著吃其他酸性水果,會覺得這些酸水果不再是酸味,而變為甜味,故名神秘果。另外其籽大而苦,葉可泡茶,樹形美觀,也可作盆景。

Synsepalum dulcificum, also known as the miracle fruit, is a plant with a berry that, when eaten, causes sour foods (such as lemons and limes) subsequently consumed to taste sweet. This effect is due to miraculin, which is used commercially as a sugar substitute. Common names for this species and its berry include miracle fruit, miracle berry, miraculous berry, sweet berry, and in West Africa, where the species originates, agbayun, taami, asaa, and ledidi.
