Cantaloupe

Both the “true” cantaloupe (the European variety, Cucumis melo cantalupensis, which has a smooth or warty skin) and the North American cantaloupe (Cucumis melo reticulatus, with its “netted” or reticulated rind) are orange-fleshed melons of the muskmelon species, which also includes honeydews and more exotic melons.

Vitamin A appears to reduce the risk of cataracts, and it’s a good source of lutein, which some studies have suggested may have a role in preventing age-related macular degeneration, a major cause of blindness in the elderly.
