Nutritional Breakdown of Melon

Melon Breakdown

Refreshingly light, crisp, and juicy, melon is the perfect Summer food. You can make a mouthwatering fruit salad by mixing the different varieties, or enjoy them one at a time with some cottage cheese. I was curious to see how the many melons compare nutritionally, so I made a handy little chart. To find out which melon has the most potassium, and which has the least amount of sugar, keep reading.

I love cantaloupe, but I don't usually buy them...I grow them on my "borrowed garden" land on my in-laws' farm. The store-bought ones are kind of bland for some reason.

Watermelons are the only melons I eat. The other are gross, the taste of cantaloupe and honeydew make me want to gag.

I love melons! They are so yummy and refreshing in the summer. I'm so glad to read here that a whole cup of yummy melon is only about 50-60 calories.

Honeydew is my favorite and although it's the worse of the melons, I just can't give that up! It's such a summer treat for me!
