It might be obvious that cucumbers and watermelon are the top vegetable and fruit to keep you cool all summer, their water content is pretty high. Many other leafy greens, vegetables, and fruits also have high water content and can help keep your temperature cool. Just to name a few:

“melons, apricots, grapes, pineapples, peaches, apples, zucchini, asparagus, green beans, broccoli, and leafy greens.”
