General Information:

Honeydew melons are considered the sweetest of all melons.  One serving (3/4 cup diced) of honeydew melon provides an excellent source of vitamin C (45% of daily value) and vitamin A and provides 50 calories of nutritious energy.

Selection and Storage:

Good-quality honeydew melons will turn a creamy yellow color and the skin will have a slightly waxy feel when ripe.  They will be firm with a small amount of softness at the stem.

Preparation and Cooking:

It is suggested that you wash melons thoroughly before slicing. The easiest way is to cut it in half or quarters (depending on the size), remove the seeds in the portion you plan to eat, then scoop out the flesh with a teaspoon.  Refrigerate melons only if they become too ripe or have been cut.
