Honeydew Melon

Honeydew Melon

Honeydew Melon

The honeydew melon is one of the winter variety of melons, which also include Persian, casaba, and Crenshaw melons.  The honeydew has a smooth rind with green pulp.  Select honeydew melons that are free of blemishes.  When the ends of the melon can be depressed slightly, they are usually ripe.  We have also found that with ripe honeydew melons we can hear the seeds rattle when the melon is shaken firmly.  They will ripen on the kitchen counter, can can be stored in the refrigerator for several days.  See the nutritional chart below.
