Honeydew is a type of melon usually characterized by its smooth, greenish skin and pale green flesh.

Honeydew is an exceptionally good source of vitamin C and potassium. Vitamin C is a natural antioxidant that helps control infections, improve immunity, and maintain healthy bones, teeth, and blood vessels. Potassium helps counteract the effects of salt on blood pressure, can reduce the risk of developing kidney stones, and possibly decreases age-related bone loss. (See more honeydew nutrition facts on

Ripe melons should be stored in the refrigerator. Unripe melons can be kept in a cool dark space until properly ripened. Cut melons should be wrapped tightly in plastic. Leave the seeds inside a cut melon until you're ready to eat it to help keep the moisture in the fruit.
