Fill your diet with sweetness and nutritional properties.
The Cantaloupe Melon is famous for its orange flesh, green netted skin and sweet flavour. But what does this variety that we sell in Agroponiente in the spring and part of the summer give us?
The Cantaloupe Melon or Cantaloupe is very low in calories but rich in essential nutrients such as Vitamin A and Vitamin C. It also contains the so-called B9 folate, the folic acid that is recommended to prevent anaemia and promote an adequate development of the fetus in pregnant women.
The high nutritional value of Cantaloupe Melon makes it a source of antioxidants, including choline, beta-carotene, and zeaxanthin. And how does this benefit us? Zeaxanthin helps filter out harmful blue light rays, thus playing a crucial role in eye health.

Melon is more than just its delicious flavour
We all like to enjoy a sweet and refreshing slice of melon, but apart from being delicious, it has many health benefits.
Thanks to its high potassium content, melon contribute to the proper functioning of the nervous and muscular system. So we are talking about a fruit that takes care of our body and mind! It also has high levels of vitamin C, which keep our bones, teeth, and skin in good condition. And if that weren’t enough, it strengthens the immune system by promoting the formation of antibodies.
Another secret about melons is that despite having a rich and unique sweet flavour, it’s a great fruit to include in our diet. This is because it has high water content, low in calories, and has a great satisfying effect, making it one of the best fruits to lose weight with.
