Organic Galia Melon

1 item (approx 400g)

Description

Galia melon rind is very similar to the texture of a cantaloupe, but the inner flesh is light yellow to green in colour, like a honeydew melon. The taste of galia melons is a unique combination of a cantaloupe and honeydew melon – so if you like either, this melon will suit you. Smaller in size (about the size of a large grapefruit), we recommend buying two.

Great as a cool summer snack, add to salads for a sweet taste or juice.

* Like us, not all fruit or vegetables are perfectly formed. We don’t believe in discriminating against misshapen carrots or imperfect potatoes and in fact, love them for their flaws. A less than round apple is still as tasty as their perfectly formed cousins. Unless your produce is clearly defective, please accept them as Nature intended.

Health benefits

Galia melons are full of many nutrients such as vitamin C that stimulates the immune system and vitamin A, carotenoids and bioflavonoids that act as antioxidants, thereby protecting your body from illnesses. Dietary fibre, particularly soluble fibre like pectin, which galia melons are high in, helps to eliminate constipation and other gastrointestinal issues. Furthermore, soluble fibre makes you feel full that reduces the likelihood of overeating.
