Cantaloupe is the perfect melon because of its unique and subtle sweet flavor- not overpowering, but enough sweetness to pair nicely with its thick orange flesh texture. Cantaloupe is usually eaten as fresh wedges or chopped, but recently, it has been popular to cube them into little fruit balls making them the perfect bite-size shape for snacking. Cantaloupe is also a strong source of vitamin C.

According to the USDA, 1-cup of chopped cantaloupe is more than 100% of the recommended daily value. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant which can strengthen your body’s natural defense system. It helps boost the immune system. Cantaloupe is nearly 90% composed of water which makes it a great food for staying hydrated. Good hydration helps with digestion, healthy kidneys, and maintaining a healthy blood pressure. Cantaloupe is perfect with fresh fruit salads or pureed into smoothies, used as a cocktails or desserts, but because of its mellow sweet taste, it is perfect to pair with slightly salt meats such as ham or prosciutto.
