Galia melon was discovered in Israel by the Dr. Karchi and named this way in honor of his daughter. Within the spanish territory, Murcia and Almeria are the only areas where this fruit is grown. Round in shape, it has a dense netting of rough lines on its skin and becomes yellow at maturity. Sweet and aromatic, with a unique aroma and flavor, its ripeness is measured more by color and fragrance than by softness at the stem. Botanically speaking, grape is a berry from woody vines. It is usually split into two categories: table grapes and wine grapes. Cultivation of grapes started 6 to 8 thousand years ago in the Near East (Georgia). Table grapes are eaten fresh and often display large, seedless fruit with relatively thin skin. White table grape, Victoria is a quite attractive, big and compact grape; its berries are big and are world renown for their gold color and impeccable taste.
Galia 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, cantaloupe is a great snack to have on hand during the hot summer months to prevent dehydration.
Rich in vitamins A, B, C and K, grapes also contain many nutrients, polyphenols and fructose easily absorbed by the body. Grape is very low in saturated fats, cholesterol and sodium.
