Nutritional values

Melons are characterised by low calorie content and high water content, which makes them taste so refreshing. Sugar melons such as the Galia used here have a particularly high vitamin C, beta-carotene, calcium and potassium content.

Net, cantaloupe and honeydew melons are also considered sweet sugar melons and may gladly replace the Galia. In any case, the following applies when buying them: Ripe fruit has a pleasantly sweet smell and yields slightly when slight pressure is applied to the end of the stem.
