Cantaloupe: Super Fruit

August 12, 2010

Which fruit has the highest amount of vitamins?  When it comes to melons, cantaloupe comes out on top. One cup cubed or a six-ounce slice without skin supplies more than the recommended daily intake of vitamin A in the form of beta-carotene.  In  fact, a serving of cantaloupe contains nearly 5-milligrams of  beta-carotene and 68-milligrams of vitamin C, more than the recommended  daily allowance.  It's also a delicious source of B vitamins and  fiber. Cantaloupe may be sweeter than you think!
