Muskmelon

Muskmelon, scientifically named as Cucumus melo, is a tender, heat-loving vegetable. It has been developed into different cultivable varieties. It has smooth skinned forms such as honeydew, crenshaw and casaba, and different netted varieties like cantaloupe, Persian melon and Santa Claus or Christmas melon. Most varieties of the muskmelon have a musk smell; thus the name muskmelon. Muskmelon originated in Persia and its adjacent areas in the east and west. It is a tremendously re-hydrating fruit. In India we mostly find the netted varieties and Cantaloupe is the common one. Its high water content helps to make up for body's fluid loss through perspiration. Cantaloupe contains decent dose of dietary fibers and its yellow-orange colored flesh is a source of beta-carotene. It contains folic acid, potassium, vitamin A and vitamin C. Regular consumption of muskmelon gives healthy and younger looking skin. This fruit helps in treating high blood pressure and is also great for menstruating women as it helps reducing heavy flow and clots.
