The Instacart guide to honeydew melons

About honeydew melons

Honeydew melons belong to the Cucumis Melo species of melon. The melon likely originated in West Africa more than 4,000 years ago. Honeydew melon seeds came to America with Columbus, and these melons are now commonly grown in California, Texas, Florida, Georgia, and Arizona.

White honeydew melons have a smooth rind that ranges from creamy white to pale green. Golden honeydew melons are a less common variety that's bright yellow. The flesh of either type of honeydew melon is green with a cluster of seeds in the middle.

Honeydew melon has crisp, juicy flesh that's very sweet. This is, in fact, the sweetest melon that you can choose from the store. White honeydew melons are slightly sweeter than their golden counterparts. These melons are typically between 6 and 9 inches in diameter and weigh 3 to 7 pounds.

FAQs About Honeydew Melons

You can store a ripe honeydew melon for up to a week, but you should enjoy this fruit as soon as possible for the best flavor. Once you've cut into the melon, you can store it in the fridge in an airtight container for up to three days. If you want to preserve the melon longer, you can freeze cubes or slices of melon in freezer bags for up to 12 months.

Honeydew and cantaloupe melons are not the same, though they both belong to the Cucumis Melo species. Cantaloupe melons have a darker rind with a netted texture. The flesh of a cantaloupe is orange compared to the honeydew's green flesh. Cantaloupe is a bit softer with a richer flavor, but honeydew is sweeter.

These melons are nearly identical in calories, water content, and macronutrients. However, cantaloupe has 68 times more vitamin A and about twice as much Vitamin C when compared to honeydew.
