The Choupette apple is a rustic variety, bi-colored, with a purple-red on its most colored face. Native from Angers in France, the variety is crunchy, juicy and perfectly sweet. The Canari melon is known for its sweet flavor slightly tangier than a honeydew melon. Its pulp is similar in texture to a pear but softer and tastes a little like Cantaloupe or Charentais melon. Its name comes from its bright yellow color, which resembles that of the canary bird.
Apples are a great snacking fruit as they are low in calories, high in water content and offer a fair amount of vitamins A, B and C. They also contain a dietary fiber known as pectin, which has been shown to lower cholesterol levels and help prevent heart attacks. They also contain trace amounts of boron, which has been touted for its ability to help build strong bones. Melon is an excellent source of beta carotene and vitamin C. High in both fiber and moisture, it helps to prevent constipation, promote regularity and maintain a healthy digestive tract. With its high water and electrolyte content, it is a great snack to have on hand during the hot summer months to prevent dehydration.
