How can you tell when to harvest honeydew melons?
Unlike muskmelons, the fruit of honeydews do not slip off the vine when mature. The best indicator of ripeness is a slight softening of the blossom end of the fruit. There may also be a subtle change in the color of the honeydew. Honeydews can be stored for 2 to 3 weeks at a temperature of 45 to 50°F.
