The light green flesh of the honeydew melon is succulent and firm with a subtle honey-like flavor. Cool and refreshing when eaten alone or as an addition to fruit salads or smoothies.
Sow honeydew melon seeds directly into soil that's at least 70°F. For a head start in cooler climates, start indoors 2-3 weeks before transplanting outdoors. Do not disturb tender roots when transplanting. Thin down to 2-3 plants per hill. Keep soil moist but well-drained. Allow plenty of room for vines to spread.
