Honeydew Melon

Honeydew melon is a smooth skinned melon similar in size and shape to a cantaloupe and have the same basic cultural requirements except that most honeydew melons ripen later in the season.

Honeydews typically have light green to creamy-white skin that sometimes can have a yellow tint. Its flesh is pale green to white, sweet and rich in diverse nutrients. It is a low-sodium and potassium-rich fruit which can help maintain blood pressure levels.

The melons are oval or round and usually weight between 4-8 pounds and 6-8″ when mature. Most vines produce 3-5 melons per plant.

Transplant Honeydew in a sunny location when the soil is consistently above 60-65F degrees (plant at the same time you plant pepper and okra). Plant your transplants 18-24″ apart. If planting in rows, space your rows at least 4-5 feet apart.

Honydew mature in about 90 days.

We grow Honeydew in both our 1204 flats (12 4-packs per flat) and #4 Charley’s Veggies (#4 round pot pack 10 per flat) categories.
