Just like avocados, non-organic cantaloupes and other melons have a tough outer skin which keeps the edible part protected from pesticide residue. Cantaloupes are part of the squash family and are packed with several nutrients including folate, fiber, antioxidants, vitamin B, C, and K.

Due to its antioxidant properties, cantaloupe protects the body from the attack of free radicals. These properties also make cantaloupe great for the skin, eyes, and hair. Cantaloupe also contains potassium which is helpful in improving heart health and managing blood pressure.
