Honeydew Melons were considered a sacred food by the Egyptians.
In those days honeydew melons were reserved only for the elite of society but fortunately, cultivation has meant that everyone can enjoy them.
They have smooth, white or yellow skin with pale green flesh. Their flesh, contained by the thin, firm skin, is moist, sweet and succulent with seeds in the centre.
Honeydew Melons are a variety of winter melon and contain more sugar than rockmelons but less than watermelons. They are a good source of vitamin C and vitamin A.
