Honeydew

Honeydew

In Season: These melons are generally available May through October Considered to be the sweetest of all melons, honeydews were sacred to ancient Egyptians and were reserved only for the elite of society. The who's who of the honeydew fan club includes Cleopatra, Napoleon, and Pope Paul II, who refused to travel far from home without a melon in tow. Although picking a good melon can sometimes be tricky, honeydew lovers say that melons weighing about 5 pounds usually have the best flavor. Sometimes, the seeds of an especially juicy melon will rattle if shaken.
