Health Benefits of Honeydew

Honeydew has an abundance of vitamin C, which contributes to immune function and radiant skin. (1) It’s also packed with fiber that enables the growth of healthy gut bacteria and other digestive benefits.

How to Choose a Honeydew Melon

For an extra burst of sweetness, choose a ripe melon. Don’t know how to tell? Its skin says it all! While honeydew is a green melon, a green-colored surface means that it isn’t quite ripe yet. Look for a melon with a yellowish cream-colored exterior to enjoy its tasty summer flavors at its best.
