Sweet and refreshing, melon is a guilt-free summer pleasure. One cup of cantaloupe (about 1/4 of a medium melon) supplies 55 calories, plus your full daily requirement of vitamin A and more than half your vitamin C. Honeydew and watermelon have the about the same number of calories per serving, but green honeydew has less vitamins than orange-fleshed melons. Red watermelon, however, distinguishes itself by containing an impressive amount of lycopene, the powerful antioxidant found in tomato products.
