Taiwan basically cultivates four types of cantaloupes: var. reticulates Naud., var. inodorous Naud., Cantaloupe, and var. albida Makino. The pulp can be red, green, or white. These muskmelon are rich in such essential nutrients as protein, lipid, sugar, calcium, and iron, as well as Vitamin C and Vitamin A. Each 100 g of pulp can have as much as 30~50 mg of Vitamin C, which can resolve hunger, constipation, fatigue, and lung issues, as well as help with heat and thirst. It is truly a miracle melon.
