Melons are good sources of vitamin C, the amount showing considerable variation with variety and maturity. They are also rich in provitamin A because of their β-carotene content.

Melon fruit was processed into clarified juice and juice concentrate. Greater yields were obtained from pressing fruit containing the rind in contrast to pressing melon flesh with the rind removed.

Melon juice is also an excellent drink for acne. It is almost a perfect food in that it has many vitamins and minerals. It is most helpful with constipation, kidney disorders and skin disorders.
