What Does a Honeydew Taste Like?

The easiest way to explain what a honeydew tastes like is to compare it to a cantaloupe, except honeydew melons can be much sweeter. Additionally, honeydew melons don’t have a musky aftertaste that is so common with cantaloupes.

Honeydew Texture

The texture of a honeydew melon can change, depending on when you use it and how ripe it is.

Ripe Melons: A ripe honeydew has a rough texture on the outside of the skin, but the fruit itself will be much softer and juicer.

Unripe Melons: The outside of an unripe melon tends to be slick and hard to the touch. Additionally, the flesh of an unripe honeydew melon is very hard, unyielding to the touch, and doesn’t have the same appealing aroma.

How Do You Make a Honeydew Taste Better?

While honeydew on its own is delicious, if you aren’t happy with the way that your honeydew tastes, then there are a few things that you can do to improve its flavor.

In the video above you can see how a honeydew smoothie is the perfect way to make you a little cooler during the hot weather and enjoy the amazing flavor of honeydew mixed with pineapple, lemon juice, and honey.
