(HealthDay News) — If you’re looking for a tasty way to hydrate in warm weather, a juicy melon is the ticket. Melons are low-calorie, high-water content foods that also provide high doses of certain vitamins, minerals and important phyto-nutrients.

Nutrients in Powerhouse Melons

  • Cantaloupe: vitamins A and C, carotenoids, folate and potassium
  • Honeydew: vitamins B and C, potassium and copper
  • Watermelon: lycopene, vitamins A and C, and potassium

To pick the perfect melon, gently rap it with your knuckles. If it makes a dull thud, it’s full of juice, and ripe for consumption.
