All You Ever Wanted to Know About Fruits - Cantaloupes and Nutrition.
Cantaloupe (Cucumis melo L. var. reticulatus Naud.) is often, incorrectly, referred to interchangeably as Muskmelon. Muskmelons have been masquerading as cantaloupes in the United States for many years.
True cantaloupes are not netted, have deep grooves, a hard warty rind, and orange or green flesh. These are grown only in Europe where the population easily makes the distinction between muskmelons and cantaloupes. Muskmelons that most Americans call cantaloupes have a distinct netted or webbed rind.
This botanical group, however, includes honeydew, crenshaw, Persian, casaba and other 'mixed melons.
The bright orange color of cantaloupes is a dead giveaway that cantaloupe is loaded with an important antioxidant, beta-carotene.
Cantaloupe is also high in vitamin C, and a good source of potassium and folate.
Health Benefits - A Chinese herbal claims that sweet melons cool fevers, moisten the lungs, and benefit the urine. In addition, the seeds will clear phlegm and benefit the intestines.
For a toothache caused by wind and heat, take six grams of melon skin, add water and steam till cooked. When cool, use as a mouth rinse.
Abundant in potassium, cantaloupes may be beneficial for those with high blood pressure. Because of their high water content, they serve as a diuretic.
Note: Cantaloupes phytonutrients and over 30 different Fruits and Vegetables plus sea vegetables, special colon cleansing fibers, a special blend of probiotics, 17 herbal concentrates, antioxidants and a complete multi-vitamin and mineral supplement.
