Honeydew melons are characterized by a large, round shape and smooth, creamy yellow rind. Their flesh is light green, juicy, and sweet. The honeydew is a smooth-skinned variety which changes from pale green to creamy yellow color as it ripens.
Honeydew melons are a good source of fiber to regulate the digestive tract and vitamin C to strengthen the immune system and reduce inflammation. The melons also provide potassium to balance fluid levels within the body, vitamin K to assist in faster wound healing, and contain other amounts of vitamin B6, magnesium, and folate.
