The honeydew is a melon that has a pale green to white-green rind and pale green flesh that is mildly sweet. This melon is a good source of Vitamin B6, Folate, and Potassium, and a very good source of vitamin C, potassium, and folate. Honeydew is a musk melon variety that was cultivated here in the U.S. after seeds were saved from a restaurant in New York that was serving this French melon.
Sweet honeydew can be found at your farmers' market fresh from the farm during the summer months. The easiest way to enjoy a melon is to cut it in half or in quarters (depending on the size), remove the seeds in the portion you plan to eat, then scoop out the flesh with a spoon.
