Honeydew are ideal for adding to fruit salads, serving with thinly sliced cured meats like prosciutto, for flavoring “spa water” and for adding to smoothies.

Honeydew Tips

  • Ripe, late summer Honeydew will have a waxy feel to the shell, and really good ones begin to emit a tropical aroma as they ripen and soften at room temperature.
  • Whole Honeydew melons do not need to be refrigerated until cut.
  • The fruit this time of year is ready to cut right away, but tastes even sweeter when they give just slightly when firmly squeezed.
