The fruit that fights colds and ageing
The Galia melon is a small, spherical melon with an earthy yellow colour and a green touch. It has a rough texture which is what makes it recognisable. But, on the other hand, its tasty flesh is yellow with a touch of green, and it’s not too firm, so cutting is a simple task. At Agroponiente, we offer this gem from spring to summer.
Galia melon differs from other melon varieties because it’s high in provitamin A, vitamin C, antioxidants and carbohydrates. In other words, the Galia melon prevents ageing and helps fight colds.
This fruit is excellent for athletes since its high potassium, and magnesium content enhances the development of muscles and protects the heart. In addition, thanks to its calcium content, we can benefit from stronger bones and teeth. You can have it in many ways, as a snack or breakfast during the hot summer months. What more do you want?

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.
