Would you TRASH a melon? Honeydew is part of the muskmelon family, along with cantaloupe and person melon. This family is also known as netted melon; their skin looks like its covered with a thick, rough netting. Honeydew is very aromatic, but if they’re picked too early they won’t become as sweet and flavorful.
Melon is thought to have originated in Persia and was also prized years later by ancient Egyptians. Today honeydew is grown in Mexico, California, Arizona, and parts of the southwest and is most abundant from late summer through early fall.
One cup of diced honeydew has 61 calories, 15 grams of carbs and 5% of your daily recommended dose of fiber and 51% of your daily recommended amount of vitamin C. This melon also haspotassium, folate, vitamin B6, and vitamin K.
Choose honeydew melons that are firm-but-not-hard and have a nice floral smell. Compare melons and select those that are heavier for its size—the heavier it is, the juicier it will be. Knock on a melon and listen for a deep, thick sound which will tell you if it’s ripe. Store whole melon at room temperature for 2 to 4 days. Once sliced, wrap and refrigerate for up to 5 days.
