Question: 

How can you tell when to harvest honeydew melons?

Answer: 

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.
