Honeydew Melon

The honeydew melon is one of the most popular ‘winter’ varieties of the musk melon. Oval in shape, the honeydew has a smooth yellow skin and a sweet, fragrant, greenish flesh.

It may be served either as an hors d’oeuvre or as a dessert. It is usually cut into wedges, the seeds removed and served chilled with a sprinkling of sugar, with the addition of ground ginger or pepper.
