The sweet melon will conquer your senses
It is a fact: the Snowball melon, also called ‘Dinosaur egg’, has a very sweet taste. At Agroponiente, we measure its sweetness by analysing its Brix degrees, or in other words, its sugar content. This melon has 15º Brix, which means it’s a fruit with high sugar content. Aside from its sweetness, it has crisp and consistent white flesh. So, say goodbye to rough textures with Snowball melon.
Although it’s intense green when harvested, you’ll see this melon has a creamy-white colouring with a yellowish tint in the grocery. Did you know that its growing process is very productive? Also, the Snowball melon has a very good post-harvest life. At Agroponiente, we grow it in Spanish fields so you can enjoy it between late Spring and Summer. How can one resist the sweet and nutritious taste of this melon?

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.
