Cantaloupe

Cantaloupes, also known as rock melons or musk melons, are a quintessential take-along snack for summer picnics and barbeques. Much like its cousins, watermelon and honeydew, cantaloupes have a high water content, which makes them great for fighting off dehydration. Its high beta-carotene levels can help ward off asthma and even certain types of cancer. Just one cup of diced cantaloupe provides 97% of the recommended daily intake for Vitamin C.
