CantaloupeProfessional Produce Farms
While cantaloupe’s rough skin isn’t exactly pretty, it’s the inside that counts with these melons. The fruit is part of the gourd family and is known for being super-hydrating and sweet. With its nutrient richness, antelopes are excellent for antioxidant and anti-inflammatory support. Need something high in vitamin C, sweet, and savory? Cut up an organic cantaloupe and enjoy a healthy snack!
One cup of cantaloupe delivers 100% of the daily recommended values of vitamins A and C, which is precisely why this melon qualifies as a "beauty fruit." The orange flesh is packed with beta-carotene, which converts to vitamin A in the body and helps promote healthy skin.
Ripe cantaloupes should have a prominent golden brown netting on the rind that stands out from the underlying smooth skin, and should have a mildly sweet fragrance. The top end should have a smooth indentation with no bits of stem, indicating that it was ripe when picked and separated from the vine cleanly, while the other end should give when pressed.
