A round to slightly oval fruit with a pale-green inside, honeydew is native to France and grows best in semiarid climates. Honeydew scores a 97 out of 100 in Dr. T.C. Fry’s “A General Guide to Food Selection,” making this food tied with several others—including cantaloupegrapes, mangosoranges, papaya and pineapple—as the second-highest rated.

Honeydew is in season in California from August through October. A honeydew measuring 6 to 7 inches in diameter weighs 1,280 grams and contains 461 calories.

Honeydew belongs to the Inodorus family in the genus Cucumis. Two popular cultivars include the White Antibes and Bailan melons.

Honeydew contains a rich supply of Vitamin C. The fruit contains 90 percent water by weight.
