Water-Soluble Antioxidant Potential of Melon Lines Grown in Turkey

Hatice Selale, Hasan Ozgur Sıgva, Ibrahim Celik, Sami Doganlar and Anne Frary    

Abstract: The antioxidant potential of 42 melon (Cucumis melo) lines including six cultivars grown in Turkey was assessed by measuring total water-soluble antioxidant capacity, phenolic and vitamin C contents. The lines showed significant variability for all three antioxidant parameters with breeding lines having higher antioxidant capacity and phenolic content than some popular cultivars. Different types of melons also showed significantly different antioxidant potentials. Thus, galia and ananas types showed a higher mean antioxidant capacity and phenolic content than the other tested types (yuva, kislik, canary, and charentais). Correlation analysis between antioxidant parameters showed a significant correlation between water-soluble antioxidant capacity and phenolic content.
