Hi there Miss May, thank you for bringing us honeydew!
Besides being a sweet treat for the taste bugs, honeydew is good for Vitamin B6, folate, and potassium. Also, like a lot of summer fruit, it’s an awesome source of Vitamin C! Just be careful, because the majority of these calories are from the sugar. Silver lining is that this is natural sugar so it’s a much better place to grab your sugar kick than from a cookie, or cake, or brownie, or candy, or ice cream, you get the picture; Fruit over cake.
When you’re selecting your honeydew; make sure it’s heavy for its size, and feels waxy. Always check to make sure the surface doesn’t have any defects or feel fuzzy. When you bring them home, store them on the counter and away from direct sunlight. Once you cut them open, if you don’t eat the whole thing at once-I don’t really know how people just stop eating honey dew it’s delicious but whatever, store them in the fridge for up to a week. Assuming again, you can walk around your house for a week knowing there’s honeydew in the fridge and just not eating it.
