On the outside, honeydew melons have a pale, greenish white rind that’s smooth and firm. Inside, the semi-firm honeydew melon flesh is a fresh, pastel green color that shines with juicy goodness. At the center, elongated teardrop shaped seeds are small and offwhite.
Pleasingly soft when ripe, honeydew melon tastes a lot like a sweet, slightly musky cucumber with nectarous juice. As honeydew melons ripen, their fragrance becomes stronger and the fruit becomes sweeter. Raw honeydew melon seeds are inedible, but toasting them with a dash of salt makes for a fresh, crunchy snack!
