Honeydews

The Honeydew has a flesh that is normally pale green.  It has a thick, juicy, sweet flesh.  When it is mature it should have a creamy yellow skin.  They can weigh anywhere from 4 - 8 pounds.  

A wedge of honeydew provides more than half the recommended daily allowance for vitamin C and has about 64 calories and 14 grams of natural fruit sugar.

Sprite Melon

The Sprite melon originated in Japan and has adapted well to the conditions in North Carolina. This unique melon has a sweet fruity flavor that resembles a cross between a honeydew and a pear. The Sprite melon is typically the size of a grapefruit. The melon has a smooth flesh and can be eaten as a snack or wonderful dessert.

Choosing a Ripe Honeydew:
When selecting a honeydew, look for one with a waxy, not fuzzy, rind. The melon should feel heavy for its size, and the surface should bounce back when pressed.
